How Variety Helps

Variety – the Children’s Charity supports Victorian kids aged 0-17 who are living with illness, disability or experiencing disadvantage through grants, scholarships, programs and events. Our vision is for all children to attain their full potential, regardless of ability or background.

Our work allows children to gain mobility and freedom, to get out and about in the community, to communicate, achieve independence and increase self-esteem, and where possible, to help them integrate into mainstream school and activities.
