Our Programmes

Recycle Mobility

Our Recycle Mobility Programme is a unique idea that focuses on promoting access to upcycled, specially adapted trikes to children who cannot use conventional bicycles.

This initiative offers a fun way to exercise and offers inclusion & independence to children of all abilities. As the trikes are pre-loved, they are sustainable and environmentally friendly too!

Heart of Learning

Variety Ireland is passionate about helping children who require additional supports with learning. We recognise the essential duties that every Special Needs Assistant carries out on a daily basis, in helping children with learning difficulties.

By providing an iPad to every National School, we hope that we can help in some small way to make learning more accessible to even more children!

Sustainable Programmes

As a “charity with a conscience”, we have adopted a progressive sustainability policy in our efforts to better service the needs of children with mobility and educational needs in Ireland.

We actively source upcycled equipment when available and try to ensure it is then further upcycled. This way we are not only helping even more chidren, but also cutting our carbon footprint!

How We Can Help

We help families, charities & communities all across Ireland

Here at Variety Ireland, we believe that no child should ever feel excluded or unequal to their peers. We aim to help those children who due to either mobility, or even financial problems may not get to enjoy as many different experiences as other children. 

We help children aged from 0-18 years, from across the disability spectrum, from all across the 32 counties of Ireland!

Choosing a Mobility Trike or Transporter

Choosing what type of mobility equipment best suits your child can seem overwhelming, as there are so many options available.

As every child is unique, so too are their requirements. To help you choose what may suits your child best, we have put together a short guide as to what to look out for when choosing a trike or transporter.

Children’s Awards 

The Variety Ireland Children’s Awards 2024, in conjunction with our sponsor Be Kingdom Kind, took place in The Westbury Hotel, Dublin on Sunday 7th April 2024.

The ceremony was an afternoon of celebrations, where we got to recognise and pay tribute to special children and individuals for their own bravery, inspiration and kindness.

Recycle Mobility IMPACT REPORT

Since launching our Recycle Mobility Programme in 2021, our mobility trikes have had a real impact on some children’s lives.

In a report carried out by Dr Jolanta Burke of RCSI, University of Medicine and Health Sciences, the impact of these trikes on both physical and mental wellbeing of children and their families was measured.

Trikes & Trees

Our Trikes & Trees Programme is designed to create pesticide-free Variety Ireland Nature Gardens around Ireland, whilst also helping us provide Specially Adapted Mobility Trikes to children across the disability spectrum!


Help Us Make A Difference!

Unlike other charities, Variety – the Children’s Charity of Ireland has no paid board members, ensuring that vital money raised goes directly to helping children across the whole of Ireland!
