Charity number


Ronald McDonald House Charities is an independent charity providing free 'home away from home’ accommodation for families with children in hospital. Thanks to the fundraising, donations and volunteering of supporters, there are now 14 Houses across the UK which helped over 7,000 families in 2016.



Many families travel miles from home so that their child can receive expert medical care from specialist children’s hospitals across the UK. Often, children have to remain in hospital for months at a time, so for the families, staying close to their child can be a struggle. Without a local Ronald McDonald House, many parents have to sleep on a chair by their child’s bed, on a pull down bed if this is available, or pay vast sums of money for hotel accommodation.

As an independent charity, we rely on the support and generosity of our families, volunteers and donors. It is because of your fundraising efforts that we are able to look after families with children in hospital.

We have achieved a lot in the last 25 years. However, there is still a great deal to do. Our mission is to ensure we have sufficient funds and expertise to develop and sustain free accommodation at every specialist children’s hospital in the UK.
