For more than three decades Somebody’s Daughter Theatre (SDT) has been producing high quality theatre, music and art with women in prison, post release and with marginalised young people. SDT works with the most disenfranchised over the longer term to break intergenerational cycles of abuse, addiction and institutionalisation by providing pathways back into formal education, training or employment.
A core objective of the SDT is to raise awareness of the issues leading to mental ill-health, addiction, abuse, institutionalisation and poverty affecting women in prison and marginalised young people, and motivating personal, social and systemic change to address underlying issues leading to cycles of disadvantage.
Since 1994 the Ross Trust has made 13 grants totalling $1,237,100 to SDT and in 2004, invited SDT to become a Collaboration. The Trust’s support focused on improving the Company’s sustainability, business management and funding for core infrastructure costs.
