Our vision at Variety is for all Australian children to attain their full potential, regardless of ability or background. We’re passionate about all kids deserving a fair go, believing no child should fall through the gaps.
Through our grants, programs, scholarships and experiences, we provide essential support when families need it most. Last year we impacted the lives of 20,800 kids in need, granting $2.35 million to kids with over 200 conditions.
We help kids 0-18 years of age who face one of these challenges
In NSW alone...
There’s 46,000 kids living with a disability, with 1 in 5 not receiving NDIS support.
And 1 in 7 kids in NSW are living in poverty, kids who have a higher chance of health and behavioural problems, and are less likely to finish school.
