What does Variety do?
- Grants for specialist disability equipment and wheelchairs that aren’t available through government services
- Adapted, accessible transport for SEND schools and other non-profit organisations with our famous Sunshine Coaches
- Memorable day trips and outings through our Great Days Out programme.
Our work helps give children and young people greater wellbeing, independence, social inclusion, mobility and self-esteem, and allows them to live their best lives – no matter who they are.
On average, a family with a disabled child has to pay an extra £581 per month to have the same standard of living as one without. We aim to address the relationship between disability and poverty.
What is our purpose?
Enabling every child to live their best life and reach their full potential, whoever they are.
We fund and deliver life-changing programmes that give children and young people across the UK a better future.
Putting our beneficiaries first, innovation, creativity, inclusivity, courtesy, patience, respect, transparency, and valuing our heritage.
