Since 1958, the Victorian Actors’ Benevolent Trust (VABT) has been providing emergency financial assistance to those in the entertainment industry who, through poor health or ill fortune, find themselves with nowhere else to turn.
In response to the pandemic and the devastating impact that subsequent shutdowns and restrictions continue to have on performing arts workers, the VABT expanded its services and launched a dedicated COVID-19 Assistance program, offering fast, easy-to-access financial support by way of food vouchers. Since its introduction, the VABT’s COVID-19 Assistance has benefitted hundreds of local Victorian artists, creatives and crew, and it continues to do so.
This ACTober, your generous support of the VABT will ensure Victoria’s performing arts professionals, whether they work onstage or off, in front of the camera or behind, can continue to rely on the VABT for support through tough times.
