Each year we help 6,000 families stay close to their children in hospital. And with your help, we can build Houses to support even more.

Support families with children in hospital

Helping more families

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. Ronald McDonald House Charities UK provides families with free accommodation and support, just a stone’s throw from their child’s ward.

Our vision is for every child in hospital to have their families close by. Your support is vital to help us reach more families who desperately need a place to stay.

Our Impact

Your help changes lives
