Keeping Families Together
We provide free family accommodation and support in our Houses, minutes from children’s hospital wards.
We have 12 Houses across the UK and each year, we are able to give over 6,000 families a free place to stay, to rest and relax away from the intensity of the wards. Keeping families close makes a big difference to everyone – it means parents can see their children whenever they want, rather than travelling to and from hospital daily. It means their other children can stay at the House too, so the family can have as ‘normal’ a routine as possible. And it also means that the child sees their family as often as possible, helping their recovery.
You may have come across Ronald McDonald Charities UK as a parent in our Houses, as a McDonald’s staff member or franchisee, or be one of our amazing corporate, community or individual supporters. You may be thinking of volunteering or offering support in a different way, so we would like to keep you up to date with what is going on in the charity.
