Together we can impact young lives in ways you may never have imagined.
Variety is one of the most trusted and reliable charities, having given close to $2 billion in grants globally to help children who are sick, disadvantaged or who have special needs.
Giving the gift of a brighter future to thousands of Australian children
The enormous generosity of the Variety community has changed the lives of thousands of Australian children with special needs for over 40 years.
Together we’ve created a place where children and their families can turn to for help when times are tough and when there is nowhere else to turn.
In 2016 we helped nearly 100,519 children with $9,959,010 in grants for:
Equipment that helps children with their mobility, like wheelchairs, and walking aids
Rare and expensive medical equipment and services including insulin pumps, wigs, feeds, oxygen pumps and more.
Technology, programs and scholarships that help children unlock all the joys of education and communication.
For over 40 years, Variety has helped make sure all kids have the same opportunities in life. No matter what life throws at them. No matter what their ability.
In 2015, generous gifts from people like you helped nearly 130,000 kids get access to specialist care and equipment that they may have otherwise missed out on.
A small gift can make a world of difference to a child and their family.
