The Shane Warne Foundation
Our mission is to enrich the lives of seriously ill and under privileged children and teenagers in Australia. We are an umbrella Foundation, meaning we raise money through events donations and corporate sponsorship, and distribute those funds to a diverse cross section of charities and individuals who work hands on in these areas. We do this as it relieves the constant burden of fund raising faced by these great organizations and people, so they can effectively handle the day to day needs of the brave children they support.

CHASE Children’s Hospice Service supports children who, through severe illness, are not expected to reach their 19th birthday. We give children and their familess care and support so that their lives can be as comfortable as possible. The CHASE care network covers Surrey, South-West London and some of West Sussex. CHASE will support families at all stages of the journey, from the day their child is diagnosed with a life-limiting condition, through to bereavement and beyond. It is a relationship that can last for many years and is vital to the wellbeing of all those affected- without it, many families would find it difficult to cope. We offer this crucial service to the families 24 hours a day, every day of the year, free of charge. We help in whatever way is needed, emotionally or practically, at the child’s home or at Christopher’s. This children’s hospice, opened in November 2001, is purpose built to provide a “home from home”. Families can stay here, or let the CHASE team look after their child whilst they take a much needed break.

Chance to Shine
Chance to Shine aims to give young people the opportunity to play and learn through cricket. We operate two major programmes – a schools cricket programme (Chance to Shine Schools) and a community-based cricket programme (Chance to Shine Street). Both programmes aim to develop and inspire young people, instilling skills, values and attitudes that will be valuable throughout their lives. We believe cricket can be a powerful and lasting component of a young person’s learning and development, in turn bringing wider social benefits. Our Schools programme engages children in 4,500 state schools all over the country and provides children with an introduction to the game, engaging both boys and girls alike. Since our foundation in 2005, our schools programme has benefitted over 3 million young people, 46% of which are girls. Our Chance to Shine Street programme operates in some of the more challenging and disadvantaged areas of the country, often affected by youth crime and anti-social behaviour. It uses the game to increase aspiration, promote social cohesion and create opportunities in diverse communities. Since 2008, the programme has grown to over 150 projects in major towns and cities across the UK. 85% of Chance to Shine Street projects are situated within the country’s 50% most deprived areas according to the Index of Multiple Deprivation, with 23% in the most deprived 5% and one third in areas most at-risk of crime; and more than half our participants live in the 20% most deprived parts of the country.
