MOBILITY PROGRAMME

Variety – the Children’s Charity of Ireland is involved in raising funds for a varied array of Mobility Programmes including; Trikes & BikesLiberty Swings and  Sunshine Coaches.

Many children with disabilities don’t ever experience a sense of movement and freedom, so we hope that with our help we can overcome obstacles and provide a fun, liberating experience for disabled and sick children.

 


Trikes & Bikes

Bikes and TrikesVariety – the Children’s Charity of Ireland can also provide children with physical restrictions with specialised Trikes & Bikes.

These much-needed Trikes & Bikes give these children the freedom to move.  Thanks to this equipment they can now join in with their friends and family in many outdoor activities.  It helps them to develop their balance, strength and muscle tone, while also helping them to get some exercise!

If you are interested in applying for a specially adapted bike/trike, please feel free to Contact Us for more information.

Liberty Swings

Most children with mobility problems don’t ever get a chance

to experience a sense of movement and freedom. Now children with very limited movement can have as much fun as everyone else thanks to The Liberty Swing.

The Liberty Swing allows wheelchair-bound children and young adults easy access, without having to lifted from their chair – the wheelchair is simply rolled onto the swing, secured and the fun begins!

 To date, we have helped to fund 11 Liberty Swings throughout Ireland.

 


Sunshine Coaches

Sunshine Coach

Through the generous support of our Irish sponsors, Variety – the Children’s Charity of Ireland Sunshine Coach Programme, provides much needed passenger coaches to worthy children’s organisations around Ireland.

These coaches enable children to “venture into the sunshine,” allowing them to visit horizons they have only imagined. The coaches, which can be specially adapted, are used to transport children to therapy, treatment, special events and enrichment programs.

The Sunshine Coach Programme has put 55 coaches on the roads of Ireland to date.
