Variety - the Children's Charity Victoria

A national not-for-profit organisation helping kids reach their full potential regardless of ability or background.


All children deserve the same opportunities in life.

All children should be able to follow their dreams and be the best they can be, no matter what life throws at them.

Variety – the Children’s Charity supports children and families who are facing many challenges through sickness, disadvantage or living with a disability.

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

Variety provides three core programs:

Our Freedom program helps children to get out and about in their community through the provision of mobility equipment such as walkers, wheelchairs and even Sunshine Coaches.

Our Future program helps children unlock all the joys of education, whether it’s technology, music, sport, therapy or a scholarship.

Our Caring program helps children with in-home care, helping make family live a little easier.

Variety receives no government funding, and it is purely through the generosity of the community that we can continue to assist so many children each year.

In Victoria alone this year, we granted over $1.2 million worth of equipment, and directly impacted 9,153 children across the state.
