IMPORTANT NOTICES REGARDING YOUR APPLICATION:

1. Is your application for a vehicle? Variety – the Children’s Charity is experiencing unprecedented demand in its grants program for vehicles. Over the last three years Variety has allocated more than $2 million to assisting children and their families with wheelchair accessible vehicles.  That demand continues to grow and unfortunately that means there is a significant delay in our ability to process new applications.  While we address the significant number of vehicle applications that are already awaiting consideration, new applications for vehicles are not expected to be processed until after 30 September, 2018.  We appreciate your understanding as we deal with the growing demand and continue to do our best to help as many families in need as possible. 

Please do not commence a new application. We appreciate your understanding as we address the significant number of vehicle applications that are already awaiting consideration.

2. This application form is NOT for scholarships.
