The Variety Smile Program offers financial and practical help to children affected by a rare disease or condition. It also facilitates access to information, resources and services for the families and carers of children affected by a rare disease or condition.

Our medical support grants help families purchase minor items and services relating to their child’s healthcare. Grants of $1,000 are available for expenses relating to medical appointments, healthcare items, therapy, respite care, parking and fuel. You can apply for one grant in any 12 month period.
