Ronald McDonald Houses give families the chance to remain close to their child whilst they are in hospital. Their location, as close as possible to a specialist children’s hospital across the UK, means that families can be by their child’s bedside in a matter of moments, whilst maintaining a degree of normal life and reducing emotional and financial strain.

Step inside one of our Houses
A Ronald McDonald House is a comfortable and welcoming place for families with sick children to rest, just steps away from the hospital. Watch this video to see inside one of our Houses.
Since 2012 we have increased the number of families we support by 93%
Thanks to our newest Houses, we’ll soon be able to help even more.
Can we help your family?
Our Houses provide a free and welcoming place to stay, available to families with children being treated at our partnered NHS hospitals. Families with a child can stay with us for as long as they need to. Find out how you can be referred for a room, and if there is a House at your child’s hospital.
