The DFC welcomes the Chamberlain Foundation

The Danny Frawley Centre extends our deepest gratitude to The Chamberlain Foundation for their recent donation, and welcomes them to our community.


These much needed funds will help support the delivery of the DFC Mental Fitness program to more than one thousand young athletes and, for the first time, would also reach those who officiate sport including umpires, referees and officials in community sport.


Developed by the Danny Frawley Centre in partnership with Monash University, the DFC Mental Fitness program will support young people in developing and understanding mental fitness to combat stress and anxiety related to the demands of team sport.


“We’re thrilled to welcome the Chamberlain Foundation to the Danny Frawley Centre family” DFC Community Impact Manager Chelsea Frawley said.


“There is a genuine alignment of purpose and values across both organisations, and together, we know we can deliver real impact in the mental health and suicide prevention space.


“Ray understands better than most the pressure and anxieties that can arise in team sport, so together we want to send the message that whether you’re an athlete or umpire, your mental fitness is crucial and we are here to support.”


Co-Founder of the Chamberlain Foundation and highly credentialed AFL umpire Ray Chamberlain said he was excited to see this relationship grow.


“The benefits of both a strong mind and body can have such a positive impact on our mental health, so we are thrilled to be supporting the Danny Frawley Centre to deliver this exciting and impactful program,” Chamberlain said.


“Together with my brothers, Peter and Brian, we founded the Chamberlain Foundation to support organisations and initiatives that help people in our community at risk of suicide.


“We knew from the very start that this was something we wanted to be involved in, so we are genuinely proud to help the Danny Frawley Centre deliver this program”
