Variety NSW/ACT Grants

If you, or someone you know, need a helping hand you’re in the right place. Variety provides individual grants for kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs to make sure all kids have the same opportunities in life. No matter what life throws at them. No matter what their ability. Variety also offers our community grants which are available to organisations that support kids in need.


Please note that during the current coronavirus COVID-19 situation, we are making every effort to minimise disruption to our work practices and workflow whilst also maintaining the health and safety of our staff. We understand our families and referrers may be experiencing similar challenges. All enquiries including but not limited to invoices and reimbursements may face delays in being actioned. Our Kids Support team are working hard to avoid or limit any delays, however, we appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate through this unique and challenging time. If you have any questions we’re here to help. Please email us on [email protected]. For regular updates on Variety’s work you can sign up to our newsletter or join our Facebook group.
