Grants for Children
and Young People

U - Z






Variety, the Children's Charity

Variety provides practical, tangible help to children and young people who are 18 or under and living with sickness, disability or disadvantage.

They provide funding for wheelchairs (electric, manual and sports) and other specialist equipment to improve the daily lives of children who are ill or who have a disability of any kind. This includes sensory play equipment, life saving monitors, specially adapted car seats, feeding tubes and much more.

Grants typically range from £100 to £6000 though larger grants will also be considered. 

Full details of their grant criteria and an application form can be downloaded from their website. All applications for wheelchairs and equipment must be accompanied by a letter of recommendation from a qualified professional. 

Applications may also be made by not for profit organisations and groups supporting children up to 18 years for specialist equipment, a Variety Sunshine Coach or to join the Variety Great Days Out Scheme which offers thousands of children the chance to form memorable experiences each year.

Well Child

Well Child helps children aged 1-18 years with serious illness and life threatening conditions across the UK.

Their Helping Hands scheme uses volunteers for hands-on projects to benefit the child and their family. This may include tasks such as decorating the child's room or adapting the garden.

To apply: contact the charity direct or complete the on-line application form.

In addition, they have an expanding programme of Well Child Nurses across the UK to support families with the care of their sick child.

Whizz Kidz

Whizz Kidz helps provide mobility equipment to disabled children and young people up to 18 years old.

The child must have a permanent condition and the equipment they require must not be available through the NHS.

To apply: Use their online application form.

Applications may take some time as each child is assessed according to their need. You will informed how long you will be expected to wait but even high priority cases may take 8 months.

The wait is worthwhile as the organisation uses their own Occupational Therapists to make a detailed assessment of your child's immediate and future mobility needs.
