About us:
Variety, the Children’s Charity

In the UK there are more than 1.3 million disabled children and young people and nearly four million children living in poverty. Variety, the Children’s Charity, exists to improve their lives.

Variety is a grant-giving charity that provides practical, tangible, direct help that makes an immediate difference to children and young people, as well as their parents and families. We do this through funding wheelchairs, specialist equipment, adapted accessible transport in the form of our Sunshine Coaches and memorable experiences through our Variety Great Days Out programme. We aim to help children have fewer bad days and more great days by facilitating their independence, freedom, dignity and greater self-esteem, so helping them to make the most of their childhood. Our focus is on supporting children aged 18 and under.

Variety in the UK is part of a global organisation, currently active in 17 different countries. Since setting up its UK division in 1949, the charity has raised close to £300 million, and supported countless children affected by disability and disadvantage.

Please note applications will be considered on a rolling basis, and chosen candidates interviewed as appropriate, so you are encouraged to apply immediately.
We therefore reserve the right to close the vacancy earlier than advertised if sufficient applications are received, and we are successful in recruiting from early applications.


Variety, the Children's Charity, is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults.
