An A&E run by children!


Did you know there is mini replica Alder Hey Children’s Hospital A&E department in London?

Alder Hey are proud partners of KidZania London, where kids dream BIG!


Like Alder Hey, KidZania is a very special place. It’s a scaled indoor city for children from 4-14 years, designed to empower and inspire. Through interactive role-play, children can try out a range of professions including becoming a paramedic, a nurse or a surgeon at Alder Hey, one of Europe’s largest children’s hospitals! You can even ride in an ambulance!

It's important to look after our mental health, no matter what age we are. We’re working with our friends at KidZania London to raise awareness of good mental health for children and young people, with a very special art competition inspired by nature, which launches in time for Mental Health Awareness week.

Read on to find out more…

Connecting with nature can make us feel happier, improve our self-esteem and reduce stress and anxiety. Fresh air can help us to feel calm and playing outside with friends is a great way to stay fit and healthy. At Alder Hey, we love the outdoors so much our hospital was built in a park!

What do you love about nature? What’s your favourite thing about nature and being outdoors?


The KidZania/Alder Hey competition runs from the 7th-21st May 2021, and full details on how to submit your artwork can be found here.

When all the entries are in, the Top 3 will be chosen by Carl Dutton, one of our fab  mental health practitioners (see video below), and Alder Hey super-surgeon Mr Iain Hennessey, who you may recognise if you’ve visited KidZania London.

The winning entries will be displayed here on the Alder Hey Children’s Charity website and will also be hung in the Kidzania Alder Hey waiting room at KidZania London! The winners will also receive an Oli the Elephant soft toy (blue, pink or red – you choose!) plus tickets to visit KidZania London*.
