​​Help to Fund Softsod


If you would like to help fund our productions, you can pledge from as little as £0.01 by simply clicking on the below "donate" button (also at the top of each web page).


By making dramas aimed at raising the profile of #MentalHealthMatters we hope, in some small way, to take the lid off the issues that remain 'unspoken', to stimulate debate, highlight the need to talk and combat oppressive stereotypes.​ We are always seeking additional funding for this important and artistically creative approach, to help us to develop and tour new productions. With your help our current production Mother and Works in Progress (WIP), like the up-coming Adventure Before Dementia, can be successfully brought to the stage. Thank you!


​Softsod Productions supports the White Ribbon movement, campaigning to end male violence against women and CALM, the campaign against living miserably. Find out more here, whiteribbon.org.uk and here thecalmzone.net.
