Transforming Children's Mental Health: Our Partnership with Alder Hey Children's Charity
Updated: Apr 18
We are thrilled to share that our partnership with Alder Hey Children's Charity will continue this year. We remain committed to our fundraising efforts to sponsor a family visit room in the brand new inpatient unit, Sunflower House at Alder Hey Children's Hospital.
We are supporting the 7 in 10 appeal which highlights that 7 in 10 children with mental health difficulties lack access to timely support. The new Mental Health Hub at Alder Hey Children's Hospital will provide essential care for the most vulnerable young patients and revolutionise the future of children's mental health.
The Mental Health Hub will consist of 2 buildings and have been designed around the needs of the children and young people being cared for.
The Catkin Centre will provide a new home for outpatient services including Neurodevelopment, Mental Health, assessment and diagnosis for ASD. The centre will ensure children and young people receive specialist care when needed, alongside care within the community.

The Sunflower House building is a new 12 bed mental health inpatient unit for children under the age of 13 which will ensure that young patients who are struggling with challenging and enduring mental health conditions receive the support they need as well as their families.
We hope you will join us in making a positive difference in the lives of these young patients and their families by supporting this worthy cause.
