Our mission is to ensure every specialist children’s hospital in the UK has free, homely and supportive accommodation for families.

What makes Ronald McDonald House Charities different

We are the UK’s leading provider of free family accommodation at specialised children’s hospitals.

Thanks to the location of our Houses, families are safe in the knowledge that they can be by their child’s bedside in a matter of moments, whilst maintaining a degree of normal life. The staff are also on hand to offer support when needed, such as a listening ear or a chat over a cup of tea.

Other ways to support

As well as supporting through donations there are lots of ways you can help. Volunteering at one of our Houses with cooking or baking can help make them more homely for the families. Or sign up one of our challenge or specialist events and encourage your friends and colleagues to sign up too.
