We're all about family at Ronald McDonald House Charities, Northern NSW
When a child is diagnosed with a serious illness or injury, it impacts the whole family. Lives can be turned upside down. That's why we provide a range of programs to help families from across Northern NSW stay together and close to the care they need.
This year we’re celebrating 30 years of helping families with a seriously ill child. Thanks to the generosity of the community over this time we’ve helped over 81,000 families.
Our Ronald McDonald Houses in Newcastle and Tamworth are keeping families under the one roof and close to the hospital at no charge. Families often have to travel far from home to receive the medical care their child needs. Our 2 Houses provide essential care and support for families, only steps away from the hospital.
Our Ronald McDonald Family Rooms in Gosford and Newcastle provide a comfortable place for families to rest and recharge in hospital. Located within the hospital and just moments away from their child's bedside, carers can make a cup of tea or coffee, take a shower, or simply rest. The Ronald McDonald Family Room is free of charge to visiting families saving each family an average of $36 per day.
Our Ronald McDonald Family Retreat provides families with Holiday accommodation to relax and reconnect. Overlooking the beautiful Wallis Lake in Forster, the Family Retreat gives 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.
Our Ronald McDonald Learning Program is helping sick kids catch-up on missed education, making the return to school less stressful. Also, our EDMED program helps ensure teachers are well equipped to support seriously ill children returning to school.
