All children deserve the same opportunity in life.
For 47 years Variety – the Children’s Charity has been helping to give children who are sick, experiencing disadvantage or living with a disability a fair go in life.
Our work allows kids to gain mobility, to get out and about in the community, to communicate, achieve independence and increase their self-esteem. We make sure the kids who miss out, can always join in.
Get on the road
Join one of our famous motoring events - travel the outback in a 30 year old car in the Variety Bash, hit the dirt tracks on the Variety 4WD Adventure or enjoy some quality family time on the Variety Brats Bash!
Get active, challenge yourself, live stream, host a morning tea, raise money for your birthday or in memory of a loved one. However you choose to support kids in need, we're here to help with ideas, tips, tricks & resources.
Your fundraising provides support in four key areas
We grant tangible equipment, educational resources and technology to help kids and organisations.
We run programs like Variety SHINE to help kids keep up in the classroom and empower their future.
We give scholarships in arts, education and sport to encourage the talents of kids experiencing disadvantage.
Meet Seth and Teagan
Variety - the Children's Charity assisted twins Seth and Teagan with an iPad, new bike and invites to free Variety Kids Events. Hear from their mum Tanya and big brother Jordan as they share their Variety story.
Liam took part in an Iron Man comp, raising $11,000 along the way!
Liam said on choosing to fundraise for Variety "I've always thought because I am able-bodied, I could support those who might not be, in particular, kids. It's hard to be a parent, and when you're faced with challenges that Variety kids and families are experiencing, this would be even harder."
Liam has a powerful message for Variety kids: "I want you to know that you are not alone, that there are people out there that are behind you. It might be tough, but it doesn't mean it's a no. It doesn't mean that you can't."
