Ronald McDonald House Charities

We keep families together and close to the care their child needs

Our Mission

To support the ever-changing needs of seriously ill children and their families.

Our Vision

To achieve the best outcome for families by reducing the impact of their child’s serious illness.

Our Programs and Services

When a child is diagnosed with a serious illness, it impacts the whole family. Lives can be turned upside down. That’s why we provide a range of programs to help families stay together and close to the care they need.

18 Ronald McDonald Houses

Keeping families under the one roof and close to the Hospital

Families often have to travel far from home to receive the medical care their child needs. Our 18 Houses provide essential care and support for families, only steps away from the hospital.

19 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms

A comfortable place for families to rest and recharge in hospital

Take a break from the ward in one of our 19 Family Rooms across Australia.   Located in Women’s and Children’s Hospitals and just moments away from their child’s bedside, carers can make a cup of tea or a meal, take a shower, or simply rest.

5 Family Retreats

Holiday accommodation to relax and reconnect

Our 5 Family Retreats in idyllic locations give families with a seriously ill child, or those grieving the loss of a child, the opportunity to take a break and spend some much needed time together.

Ronald McDonald Learning Program

Helping sick kids catch-up on missed education

With a Learning Program in each Australian State and Territory, we help over 1300 students every week catch-up on missed education, making the return to school less stressful. In addition, our EDMED program helps ensure teachers are well equipped to support seriously ill children returning to school.
