Nobody likes coming to hospital, but many families leave Alder Hey feeling grateful and indebted to our dedicated staff. A lot of them ask us how they can give something back.
Like any other NHS Foundation Trust, we’re funded mainly by the government and this money allows us to operate a great children’s hospital every single day. But we always want to do more, and we want our new Alder Hey in the Park to be a truly world-leading hospital for families across the UK.
Raising money for Alder Hey
Alder Hey Children’s Charity has raised over £20m to support Alder Hey in the Park but we still have a way to go to reach our target. By supporting our Charity, you will help support pioneering research as well as make Alder Hey in the Park a truly child-friendly hospital with digital enhancements.
If you’d like to make a donation, or if you’d like to help in a different way – perhaps by taking on a challenge or holding a fundraising event – please visit our Charity website. No matter how you do it, your support is a truly remarkable thing and makes a real difference to patients and families. You can also have a chat with the fundraising team on 0151 252 5716 or call in to see them in the hospital atrium.
Become a member
Membership is free and designed to bring parents and children closer to Alder Hey. Members can have their say on the future direction of the Trust and have an opportunity to attend special events.
Membership is very family-friendly and children from the age of seven can join.
Local people who have an interest in Alder Hey’s plans can become members, leading to opportunities to stand for election to the Council of Governors.
A total of 36 Governors are elected from the membership base and represent patients, parents, partner organisations, staff and the general public. They play a key role in working alongside the Board of Directors to ensure the Trust’s plans are being delivered and that the interests of all stakeholder groups have been considered.
Are you interested in joining thousands of others in becoming a member? It’s free, takes only a few minutes and you can choose your level of involvement.
