Can we help your family?

The Ronald McDonald House at Moorfields Eye Hospital is a unique House as it is located at a specialist hospital that only treats patients with ophthalmic conditions. It is the only Ronald McDonald House in the UK where accommodation is pre-booked. This is because the Hospital largely carries out elective surgery. The House has specialist equipment for the blind and visually impaired and provides an array of creature comforts for families from all over the UK and the rest of the world.

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.
