Nappies & Feeds

Variety provides assistance towards the purchase of nutritional feeds (including associated consumables) and nappies to assist kids living with sickness or disability.

You can select one or more as part of the grant request up to the value of $1,000. These must be directly related to the diagnosis and supported by a GP or Allied Health Professional

  • Nutritional Feeds – formula, oral nutrition supplements, food thickeners
  • Consumables – feeding sets, enteral dispensers/syringes, enteral feeding tubes/devices, and accessories, wipes
  • Nappies

  • Applicants must live in NSW or ACT
  • Applications can only be accepted for kids aged 0 to 18 years
  • Applicants must be medically diagnosed with a chronic illness, rare disease or disability
  • Previous recipients will not be considered for another Nutritional Feeds & Nappies grant until 12 months after the date listed on their outcome letter (though you may still be eligible for another of our grants during this time)
