How it can help me
At Ronald McDonald House Charities UK, we believe that sick children need their families close.
We work closely with our NHS hospital partners to support family centred care by giving families a place to stay, moments away from their child’s ward.
What is Family Centred Care?
A hundred years ago, children’s wards didn’t allow any visitors at all. Young patients would face the trauma of being separated from their parents for long periods of time. Then, psychologists began to connect hospitalisation as a child to issues in adulthood. Discover our comic tracing the history of family centred care.
