Our Pillars


Alder Hey treats over 900 patients every day who deserve the highest quality care and facilities. We are proud to fund lifesaving equipment, advanced technologies and distraction innovations to help Alder Hey clinicians do the very best for our patients.

Research, Innovation and Education

We build strong corporate partnerships and work with leading innovators to constantly push the boundaries of what is possible. We invest in people to drive forward key areas of research excellence at Alder Hey, including childhood cancer, inflammatory diseases and respiratory health. Donations support patients here at Alder Hey but also help to make the future brighter for children around the world through our vital research.

Campus and Community

Our charity is helping to create the best possible environment to nurture bright futures for children. Our supporters have helped to build and enhance our strikingly designed hospital campus, inspired by children and nature. Together we have raised millions of pounds to build unique facilities devoted to community and mental health services, research facilities and a brand new home for our specialist bereavement centre. We are currently fundraising for a UK-first specialist Surgical Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, keeping families together at the toughest times.

Alder Hey Magic

Our families, visitors and staff regularly tell us that there is a special feeling when you walk into our hospital; we call it ‘Alder Hey magic’ which captures the way we make hospital life brighter for our brave young patients. Alder Hey Charity is committed to going above and beyond what is available on our hard-working NHS. From ward musicians and art workshops to the latest distraction technology, we strive to provide the best patient experience possible.


We are committed to making change and amplifying voices that have the potential to create brighter futures for children. Utilising the vital research and innovative work we fund, Alder Hey’s experts are driven to influence positive change for the next generation.
