Variety Kids on the Move
The Variety Kids on the Move programme provides life-enriching assistance to Kiwi kids so they can get out and about. Whether it's much-needed mobility equipment for a child with physical restrictions, all-abilities playground equipment, bikes for disadvantaged Kiwi kids or a Variety Sunshine coach for a school... it's all about freedom, independence and inclusivity!
For mid-low income families dealing with the added complications of a disabled child, life is even more difficult. Variety helps ease the load or these families, getting these disabled kids moving and participating more fully in family and school life by providing the mobility equipment they desperately need. Each year Variety provides hundreds of children who have physical restrictions with much-need specialised trikes, chairs and standing frames. At last these children are given the freedom to move. They can join their families and friends for bike rides and participate more fully in school activities.
Providing access to play equipment suitable for children of all abilities is another priority. Variety partners with forward-thinking individuals, corporations, trusts and councils to provide all-abilities playgrounds, and Liberty Swings which accommodate children in wheelchairs. The annual Variety Bikes for Kids Tour provides disadvantaged children with the freedom and independence of their very own bike. For communities in need, Variety provides groups with Sunshine Coaches and vehicles to transport thousands of New Zealand children to school, therapy and community outings.
