The reality is, parents want to be just minutes not miles away to support their child and it makes a real difference to a child, knowing their family is close by.
Ronald McDonald House Charities UK provides families like yours a ‘home away from home’ when it’s most needed.
Having somewhere to sleep, eat and rest away from the intensity of the ward makes a difference. Parents are more able to cope, which really helps their child in hospital too.
The impact of the coronavirus pandemic means we have lost nearly 50% of our income. Yet it still costs us £25 to support each family for one night.
Children will continue to need NHS treatment, and families will continue to need our vital service.
So we can keep supporting the families that need us most, making sure they are minutes not miles away from their child in hospital.

To be able to be near my family during such an awful time made all the difference. I can never thank Rachel and her team enough for what they did. I saw my children happy and spending time with their poorly brother.
