Helping children with renal and
urological problems since 1968



    Alder Hey Children's Kidney Fund was founded in 1968 by parents and friends of children with renal and urological disorders.  In 1968 there was no specialised renal unit for children at Alder Hey Hospital and the fund was able to help financially to provide equipment for the unit.  Over the years the work of the Fund has evolved to meet changing techniques and procedures but to this day still focuses on supporting children with renal and urological disorders.

    The Fund is run by volunteers and has no salaries or expensive office costs which ensures that over 99% of all funds raised are ultimately used to benefit children who have renal and urological problems (the remaining small amount is required for some costs that we can't avoid such as insurances and postage).

    We are always looking for new members that can bring fresh ideas to the Fund or even take on formal roles within the Fund management structure so if you would like to get involved we would love to hear from you via the 'Contact Us' link.

    We hope you enjoy our website and find it useful.  Be sure to check back regularly as we continue to grow the site into a comprehensive information hub and resource portal for patients, parents, carers, friends, families and our supporters.
