Variety Community grants are aimed at assisting organisations working directly with WA children who are sick, disadvantaged or living with disability. Variety WA provides funding for equipment to enable organisations to impact children through inclusion, education, independence and joy. They provide assistance that is not accessible through government funding or alternative services.
