Ronald McDonald House Newcastle, located in a peaceful bushland setting on the grounds of the John Hunter Children’s Hospital, provides a ‘home away from home’ to families of children receiving hospital treatment for serious and life threatening conditions – whether from disease, injury or a congenital condition. We strive to provide an atmosphere where the familiar routines of home life can continue as much as possible through stressful and difficult times.
Since opening the doors in 1991, close to 1000 families call us home each year in our 12 comfortably furnished family bedrooms and 6 self contained units. Communal areas of the House are as much about sharing journeys as they are about sharing facilities, with families, staff and volunteers providing a caring and supportive environment. We are grateful for the continued support and goodwill of the wider community that ensures the House continues to make it possible for families to stay together at a time when they need each other the most.
