We rely on the generosity of fundraisers to help us support families in our Houses. Our vision is for every child in hospital to have their families close by, and to ensure families are fully supported in our Houses and remain actively involved in their child’s care.
Through our 11 Houses across the UK, we provide free accommodation to families with children having treatment in hospital. This means families can be just moments away from their child’s bedside on the hospital ward.
The best medical care for your child isn’t always close to home. Families often find themselves travelling long distances to get to their child’s hospital. Our Houses offer a place to cook, rest and recharge so that families can support their child in hospital, for as long as they need.
Every year we help over 6,000 families stay close to their children in hospital
Even amidst a global pandemic, childhood illnesses and accidents haven’t stopped. By donating to the Christmas Bedside Appeal, you can help families stay where they need to be: Close to their child in hospital over the Christmas period.
As we approach the winter months, our team here at Ronald McDonald House Charities UK have put plans in place to safeguard the health and safety of staff and families in our Houses.
