Help us keep families together

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.

Staying with us

Through our 12 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.

Ronald McDonald House Charities UK

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
