About Our Client

Ronald McDonald Houses enable families to maintain a degree of normal life while their child is undergoing medical treatment in partnered specialist children's hospitals across the UK.

In the UK, Ronald McDonald House Charities UK was established as an independent charity in 1989. Our Houses not only provide families with accommodation, but with a space where they can rest, cook and take time out from the hospital, so they can continue to stay strong for their child. Children that require specialist medical care often have to travel long distances to receive treatment. Our Houses are located next to partnered NHS hospitals; we run 12 Houses and there are a further three that are locally operated by independent charities.
