Ronald McDonald House Brighton provides free 'home away from home' accommodation for families who have children and babies at the Royal Alexandra Children's Hospital and the Trevor Mann Baby Unit at the Royal Sussex County Hospital. In 2013, the House helped over 200 families stay close to their sick children.
A Ronald McDonald House is more than just a place to stay. It offers comfort, support, a safe environment where families can interact, share their experiences and know that they will always have a shoulder to cry on. To maintain a degree of normality, siblings and extended family can visit and stay at the House too. We offer normality, somewhere families can call home, when the rest of their world is in turmoil.

We need to raise £110,000 per year to keep the House open

"My son Caelan was born at 25 weeks weighing 1 lb 12oz. He had a few complications and not living locally meant spending less time with him. This fantastic Charity stepped in and offered me a place to stay, somewhere I could call home and be close to my son. I will forever be grateful for the fantastic support and work that Ronald McDonald House Brighton provides."
Amy Reeves, Caelan's mum
