Who are you? 

I am Ed Stansmore and for the last 3 years I have been working in behavioural, emotional, social and mental health schools. My sense of humour and my empathetic nature have helped me to reach out to children who struggle with these conditions in a positive and often ridiculous manner!


In not being afraid to make a fool of myself, in creating a safe space in which to be themselves, in encouraging creative play - these children can express themselves and deal with issues they may not be able to verbalise.


This is the path that lead me to drama therapy. 

I believe I can legitimately reach these children and this MA will give me the tools to do so. 

As gushy as it sounds - I have found where I am meant to be.

Where will the money go? 

I have been accepted to the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama - making this dream a reality, but the course fees, living costs, travel expenses and therapy sessions make the fees astronomical.

If you can help fund me in anyway you will be contributing to

  • £10,558 course fees
  • £850 per month rent
  • Travel costs around placement schools in London 
  • Mandatory therapy sessions
  • Basic living costs

Rewards 

I have seen the impact I can have on SEMH children, and I have seen how drama and creative play can bring out potential in them not even they knew they had.
