Evolving industry support for vulnerable members

When you are not earning, a small amount of help can mean a lot. The screen and performing arts philanthropic funds are raising money with a unified approach.

This year, as the performing arts sector faces enormous problems, the state-based Performing Arts Benevolent Funds have combined into the Alliance of Australasian Performing Arts Benevolent Funds (AAPABF), supported by Cate Blanchett.
