Can we help your family?

Ronald McDonald House Brighton sits opposite the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in the centre of the city. This eight-bedroom House provides free, comfortable accommodation to families with children and premature babies being treated at the hospital. We also run a further 10 bedrooms on the top floor of the children’s hospital – meaning we can offer 18 ensuite rooms to families with seriously ill children.

our Impact

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.
