Ronald McDonald House Charities
Ronald McDonald House Charities provides free 'home away from home' accommodation to families while their child is in hospital.
Looking after families
Ronald McDonald House Charities has been helping families for over 25 years; we are the UK's leading provider of free family accommodation at NHS hospitals. We have an inspirational team behind us and incredible supporters, to whom we are eternally thankful; without their hard work and contributions we would not be where we are today.What we do
Keeping families together
We provide families with a free 'home away from home' which enables them to stay close by while their child is in one of our partnered children's hospitals. Families can stay for as long as they need to; the longest stay in one of our Houses currently stands at over two and a half years.Who we are
There are 14 Ronald McDonald Houses across the UK, all located close to specialist children's hospitals. Our Houses are open 365 days a year and are equipped with everything you would find in a family home. Families can get a good night's sleep, prepare their own meals and feel at home, knowing that they're only a moments away from their child.
