Planning granted for the Alder Centre

The Alder Centre in Liverpool has been granted planning approval by Liverpool City Council. The new bereavement counselling centre for Alder Hey children’s hospital will provide a dedicated home for counselling and support services for people affected by the death of a child, including facilities for the hospital’s nationwide child bereavement helpline. The Alder Centre is designed as a series of rooms configured around a heart space, each with large windows looking across a ‘Secret Garden’ or smaller secluded garden spaces according to spatial and privacy needs. AHMM is also supporting fundraising for the fit-out of the building, including through next week’s Cycle to MIPIM.
