The VABT provides Emergency Support to those experiencing ill health or medical emergency. If this is you, please continue with this application form. In response to the current crisis and the subsequent challenges faced by many within our industry, we have established a standalone COVID-19 Assistance fund.
If you are a professional performing arts worker who has been impacted financially by the COVID-19 crisis, whether through loss of work, a significant reduction in hours, or an inability to practice your craft due to ongoing restrictions, please apply through our COVID-19 Assistance Fund.
If you are experiencing substantial financial distress, or are under other significant pressures as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the VABT is temporarily accepting applications for Emergency Support, even if you are not experiencing ill health or a medical emergency. To apply, please continue with the form below.
Please note, the VABT’s Emergency Support primarily exists to assist those experiencing ill health and medical emergency, so priority will be given to applicants in those scenarios. However, we acknowledge the severity of the current crisis and encourage you to please reach out if you are in need of support.
