Alder Hey Children’s Charity raises vital funds to help make Alder Hey Children’s Hospital a truly world-class, patient-friendly hospital for the 330,000 patients and families we care for every year.
The charity helps to fund a range of activities and projects that are designed to enhance and improve the lives of our amazing young patients. This includes the funding of specialist medical equipment to ensure our brilliant surgeons and clinical staff have the most up to date and cutting edge technology available and funding hi-tech distraction equipment designed and proven to reduce pain and anxiety in our patients. We also fund a range of programmes and special projects such as our ward musicians, our on-site magician and the play specialists we have on every ward.
In September 2021 we launched our new Surgical Neonatal Appeal to raise £3m towards a brand new, state of the art Surgical Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the hospital.
Our hugely successful 7in10 Children’s Mental Health Appeal, which highlighted that 70% of young people with a mental health condition are currently missing out on vital mental health interventions at a sufficiently early age, raised close to £3m to enhance inpatient and community mental health services at our brand new mental health unit at Alder Hey, enabling more children to access the treatment they need at the time they need.
