    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    SODA was founded in 2009 by Sam Billingham who, having overcome her own experiences of Domestic Abuse, wanted to create a secret community where men and women who experienced and survived Domestic Abuse could support and guide one another as they escaped their abusive relationships and embraced their new lives.

    Since then, Sam has realised the amount of men and women in the UK that are in need of emotional support, guidance and financial help to heal some of the scars of domestic abuse and become a survivor rather than a victim.

    Today, SODA operates a variety of projects and services to raise awareness of domestic abuse and offer vital services for the partners of perpetrators.

    Much of the support we currently offer is online based but we are working hard to raise awareness whilst continuing to provide emotional support, guidance and friendship to the members of our secret online group and the brave men and women that reach out to us.

      I know it's so close to Christmas and money is tight for everyone but if you can donate just £1, it really will make all the difference.
