With your support, we can help our patients be more comfortable while undergoing treatments.

At Alder Hey, we are dedicated to patient comfort and care. That is why we invite you to help make a difference. We’re asking for your support to create a calming and peaceful environment for our young children by purchasing a Sensory Voyager – a specialist machine designed to help alleviate stress and anxiety for all our patients.

We urgently need to raise over £10,000 to purchase an invaluable Sensory Voyager.

For many children and young people, hospitals can be intimidating with unfamiliar noises and missing their home comforts. Sensory Voyagers help reduce stress and anxiety for our patients with calming lights, sounds and tactile elements, helping children to reconnect with the world around them.

We urgently need to raise £10,064 to purchase an invaluable Sensory Voyager. Every donation matters, and so regardless of size, your contribution will directly impact our patient’s experience and comfort them when they need it most.

We talked to Play Specialist Emma Clapham, who said:

“The Sensory Voyager helps with social interaction between patients, particularly after the difficulties of Covid. It’s widely accessible for all ages and allows them the freedom to play and be children – not just a patient. The Sensory Voyager is beneficial when it comes to alleviating anxiety that children and young people may feel in hospital, it’s such a pleasure to see them enjoying themselves and having fun.”
