Ronald McDonald House Cardiff

Your donation could help continue to support thousands of families each year at Houses like this, across the UK

Ronald McDonald House Cardiff, which opened in 2017, is a purpose-built House just a few moments from Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital, with 30 en-suite bedrooms to provide free accommodation to families of children being treated at the hospital. There are also communal kitchens and living areas where families can spend time together away from the ward. 

More than just a place to stay

Going to a hospital far from home can be a frightening experience for a child; it's important that they have their families close by for love and comfort. Ronald McDonald House Cardiff provides free accommodation for these families, somewhere they can call home when they're many miles from their own front door. It offers support and a safe environment where families can share their experiences with others in similar situations.

In 2018 the House helped 608 families stay close to their children in hospital.

"The health board welcomes the opportunity to work with Ronald McDonald House Charities who have significant experience providing support to parents and families in a number of other children's hospitals across the UK. We hope that through this collaboration we will be able to provide improved care and help to families when they are supporting children being treated at the Noah's Ark Children's Hospital for Wales."
