About our charities

The Steven Gerrard Foundation and Shooting Star CHASE Hospice

We have chosen these two charities as they are at the heart of our journey with Matthias. They gave Matthias a perfect completion to his far too short a life. As a family we will be eternally grateful for them making our goodbye to our beautiful boy as complete as it possibly could have been. Thank you just doesn’t seem enough.

About the Steven Gerrard Foundation

The SGF aim to generate as much money as possible to provide additional funding for a range of children’s charitable organisations and projects. Fairbridge and the Children’s Hospice, Claire House, are two of the first projects chosen to be supported by the SGF. 

SGF is supported by the Consortium for Street Children whose expertise will ensure the Foundation is managed effectively, guaranteeing that the money raised will make a real difference to the lives of children across a range of deserving charities.

They aim to provide relief to children and young people in need, whether through illness, family breakdown, disability, involvement in the streets, financial or educational disadvantage.

Whilst operating both in the UK and worldwide, SGF will have particular focus in Stevens’ home town of Liverpool.

About the Shooting Star CHASE Hospice

Shooting Star CHASE is our local children’s hospice service – a charity caring for local families with a child or teenager with a life-limiting condition. They currently help over 600 families living in western London, Surrey and West Sussex.

Their aim is to make every day count for these families, for every step of their journey, sharing the good times and helping them through the tough times with practical, nursing and emotional support.
