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, all across the 32 counties of Ireland!

Trikes for Life

As part of Variety Ireland’s “Recycle Mobility Programme” we are offering the corporate sector the chance to change the lives of children with disabilities.
By donating special mobility trikes to children across the disability spectrum, companies can help to ensure that the most vulnerable in our society can be included in outdoor activities with their family and friends.

Recycle Mobility IMPACT REPORT

Since launching our Recycle Mobility Programme in 2021, we have supplied over 40 specialised trikes to children all across Ireland.

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 well-being of children and their families was measured.

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!
