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.
At Ronald McDonald House Charities UK, we believe that sick children need their families close. But the best medical care for children isn’t always going to be close to home and families often find themselves travelling long distances, to get to their child’s ward.
Ronald McDonald House Charities UK provides families with free accommodation and support, just a stone’s throw from their child’s hospital bed. Parents and siblings have a place to rest their heads, along with facilities allowing them to retain as much normality as possible. With every donation you make, you’re helping us to keep families together, when it matters most.
71p from every pound donated is spent on running and developing Houses.
We saved each family, on average, £1,240 in out-of-pocket accommodation costs.
We are partnered with 12 NHS hospitals across England, Scotland and Wales.
We saved families, on average, from travelling 62 miles to and from hospital each day to be with their child.
Your continued support means we can support families in our Houses across the country at their times of need. Watch the video below to meet some of the families whose lives have been affected by you donations.
