About The Charity
Variety – the Children’s Charity empowers Australian children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs to live, laugh and learn. Variety supports over 1,200 families in need every month through the provision of vital equipment and services.We’re aiming to raise $100,000 on the night to provide a case management service to families who have a rare disease or condition in the Newcastle region.
When a child has a rare disease, diagnosis is often difficult or extremely delayed and families can experience isolation, psychological and financial stress. The emotional burden and lack of practical support is a major issue in the treatment and management of rare diseases. The Case Management service will tailor support plans to ensure each family’s needs are met and eases some of the pressure of taking care of a child or children with complex needs. The aim is to have each family feel confident and empowered enough to not need the support of a Case Manager anymore.
