We would like to welcome Ray Chamberlain to Code 9 as our latest ambassador.  Ray is a founding member of the Chamberlain Foundation. The Chamberlain Foundation is a suicide prevention and mental health charity providing support to organisation whose services help Australians prevent and recover from these experiences.

We help fund programs that support Australia's first responders, volunteer emergency workers, service men and women and the wider community. The Foundation has donated in excess of $350,000 to various programs since it’s inception.

From a footy perspective, Ray has officiated in over 350 games, 20 pre-seasons, the International Rules in 2011 and has been honoured with an AFL Life Membership. With 31 finals, 6 preliminary finals and 3 grand finals under his belt, Ray is in the elite class of being one of only 60 field umpires in the history of the game to officiate as a field umpire in an AFL Grand Final. But umpiring is only one string to his bow. Growing up in the ACT, Ray played representative cricket at a state level U/19 & U/21 and also at National Championship and senior level. He has a Bachelor of Education in Secondary Education and a Diploma of Financial Services and Mortgage Broking running his own small business
