About Us

The Chamberlain Foundation was established in 2015 by Ray, Peter and Brian Chamberlain to support organisations providing services to people suffering with mental illness and at risk of suicide with a particular focus on First Responders and Service Men & Women.

The Chamberlain Foundation runs three key fundraising events: ‘Chambo Challenge’, ‘Brothers Lunch’ and the ‘Razor Ride’ and through these activities has raised $50,000.

Our Aim

Ray, Peter and Brian through the Chamberlain Foundation will use their influence and experiences to improve the lives of those that are dealing with trauma, loss, disadvantage or mental health issues.

The Chamberlain Foundation is passionate about making a positive impact in the areas of mental health and suicide prevention.

We will do this through creating awareness and funding programs and services with a focus on:

  • Service Men & Women
  • First Responders
  • Education

We are also open to funding new initiatives and pilots that can demonstrate impact, value and the potential to become self-sustainable.

Our Values

The Chamberlain brothers place significant value on:

  • Mateship
  • Honesty
  • Hard work
  • A fair go
  • Opportunity

To know a Chamberlain in your hour of need means that your challenges will be met and solved with dignity and compassion.

Our Team

The Chamberlain brothers: Ray, Peter and Brian. Three brothers, largely self-made, have overcome adversity to achieve the personal and professional success they enjoy today. At critical times in their lives, people and circumstances have supported and nurtured their drive, ambition and willingness to put their shoulder to the wheel.

Prior to establishing the Chamberlain Foundation, Ray, Peter and Brian undertook a wide range of philanthropic and charitable activities on an informal basis. They established the Chamberlain Foundation to consolidate and sharpen those activities.
