Together we can impact young lives in ways you may never have imagined.
Variety supports kids 0-18 who are sick, experiencing disadvantage or living with a disability through our grants, scholarships and programs.
Variety grants wigs to kids who have lost their hair due to a medical condition, through our wig grant. It allows a child to be fitted for a specialised custom-made real hair, suction wig, that gives them increased confidence and self-esteem in their everyday lives.
Losing your hair can have profound psychological effects, particularly through childhood and adolescence. One specialised wig can cost up to $6,000 and lasts two to three years so the cost is prohibitive for many families. Because of the support from our amazing Hair with Heart community, Variety provides grants for kids across Australia who have lost their hair due to medical conditions such as alopecia, cancer and trichotillomania.
The Variety - the Children's Charity supports kids 0-18 who are sick, experiencing disadvantage or living with a disabilty.
Variety help families through our grants, scholarships, programs and experiences. In 2021 Variety supported 75,275 children across Australia.
Meet Taya, a girl who was born with muscular dystrophy. When Taya’s wheelchair broke and she lost the independence she once knew, her support coordinator put her family in touch with Variety and they applied for a grant to help in buying a motorised wheelchair to assist with her day to day life.
