As people everywhere feel the impact of the worst cost of living crisis in years, those with a young family member in hospital are being hit particularly hard, and many are struggling to make ends meet.
At Ronald McDonald House Charities UK, we know that life costs more if your child is being treated in hospital, especially when that treatment isn’t close to home.
We conducted research to better understand how the families we look after are affected.
Our survey included parents and carers who’d stayed in a Ronald McDonald House within the last six months.
The results paint a bleak picture
As an independent charity, we rely on the support and generosity of our volunteers, fundraisers, and donors to keep thousands of families close to their sick children in hospital each year. With soaring costs, that support is needed now more than ever.
Your donation today could:
Help stop the families we accommodate from going hungry
Provide somewhere safe and comfortable for families going through traumatic times
Help to alleviate the mental stress of having a sick child in hospital
