Our Houses

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.

      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.
