This Spring, Alder Hey has launched a fundraising drive that will transform the way mental health services are delivered to children and young people. Unfortunately, 70% of young people with a mental health issue are currently missing out on vital mental health interventions at a sufficiently early age. So this campaign aims to raise £3m to improve inpatient and community mental health services at Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, giving more children access to the treatment they need, when they need it.
We’re proud to back Alder Hey Children’s Charity’s 7 in 10 Children’s Mental Health Appeal, and we’ve kicked the campaign off with a donation of £500,000 from last year’s #TogetherforAlderHey PJ campaign.
"We are honoured that as we launch our ‘7 in 10 Children’s Mental Health Appeal’ Matalan continues its longstanding support of Alder Hey Children's Charity, joining us as a key supporter in this appeal which offers a once in a generation opportunity to transform the way we support our young mental health patients."

CONISTON CHALLENGE 2019 & HACK-A-THON
A small team from Matalan took on the signature Coniston Challenge. They trekked, biked and ran to raise money for Alder Hey. We also got involved with designing the scrubs of the future. A team from Matalan spent the day with Director of Innovation, Iain Hennessey where they heard about the challenges faced, and created their new design for scrubs.
