How we help
We believe all Aussie kids deserve a fair go.
We help kids 0-18 years of age who face challenges with disability, chronic illness or financial hardship. In 2017, Variety – the Children’s Charity supported children with more than 133 different conditions. We help children who can’t be formally diagnosed and those who have multiple conditions. If you are unsure whether we can help your child, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Variety Kids’ Xmas Party
Variety – the Children’s Charity celebrates our 30th Variety Children’s Christmas Party.
We hold lots of exciting events throughout the year so kids can have some fun, meet new people and try something new.
Variety Shine Intensive Program
Ensuring all kids get the opportunity to keep up with their mates in the classroom.
Variety Bikes for Kids
The Variety Bikes for Kids Program provides freedom, independence and joy to disadvantaged children through the provision of a bike.
Learn more about this very special program
Education and learning equipment
Variety helps children unlock all the joys of education, whether it’s technology, music, sport, therapy or a scholarship.
Mobility and Communication
For many children, moving and communicating better means greater independence, freedom and self-esteem.
Learning that your child needs access to a rare and often expensive piece of medical equipment or service can be a daunting experience.
Variety – the Children’s Charity provides wigs to kids who have lost their hair due to Alopecia or another medical condition such as cancer. Losing your hair can have profound psychological effects, particularly through childhood and adolescence.
Schools and organisations
Variety helps schools and organisations with things like all-ability playgrounds, Liberty swings (modified for special needs), and sunshine coaches
Liberty Swings allow children in wheelchairs or afflicted by a physical impairment the chance to enjoy the joy of swinging.
Variety Sunshine Coaches provide transport to organisations that cater for children with physical disability, regional or social disadvantage, to enable them to access the community and to experience a range of special programs and activities.
Variety’s Scholarship Program provides scholarships for children with an existing talent, who are disadvantaged or living with a disability, to achieve their full potential and to follow their dreams.
