About this house
Ronald McDonald House Camberwell has provided free accommodation to the families of children staying at King's College Hospital since April 2000. Following a recent relocation and expansion, at a cost of some £2.7 million, the House is now equipped with 24 bedrooms, communal areas and a children's play area.
Our new home, on Windsor Walk, would not have been possible without the astonishing support shown by fundraisers, volunteers, and local businesses.
In 2013, the House helped 327 families stay close to their children in hospital.
Ronald McDonald House Camberwell is more than just a place to stay. It offers comfort, support and a safe environment where families can interact, share their experiences and know that they will always have a shoulder to cry on. We encourage extended families to visit and we host events and workshops to keep families strong and full of hope.
The House is a few minutes walk from King's College Hospital enabling families to continue their lives with some degree of normality, knowing they are just moments from their child's bedside. To make them feel even closer to their child each room in the House has a direct phone-line to the children's ward.
About the hospital
The Children’s Services department at King’s is at the forefront of diagnosing, treating and preventing diseases in children and is well known for its exceptionally high standards of teaching and research. It has the largest liver disease centre in the UK and outstanding intensive care services.
"When we finally left the Camberwell House, both Richard and I really missed it and the friends we had made there, but we have lots of lovely memories of our stay. We are so grateful for what the House and its staff did for us; it would have been very difficult to get through each day if it wasn't for the support that they gave us. Words cannot describe how grateful we are; we will never forget it."
