About the House
Ronald McDonald House at Alder Hey Hospital, Liverpool is the largest Ronald McDonald House in Europe. Since opening in 1993 with just 26 bedrooms, the House has expanded twice and now offers accommodation to 84 families each night. The House has accommodated over 16,000 families.
There are now 69 family bedrooms and 15 family apartments for long stay families, who need to stay for 6 months or more. Each apartment sleeps a family of 4/5 and has a twin bedroom, lounge, dining area, open plan kitchen and bathroom.
In 2013, the House helped 2,300 families stay close to their children in hospital.
The House has a waiting list every night in excess of 20 families and development of the apartment block will not only give long stay families some much needed privacy, but will also release rooms in the main House for short stay families.
The House is run by an independent Charity, the Alder Hey Family House Trust Ltd.
