RM Family Room Wollongong Hospital
Take a break from the wards and hospital routine
Visiting the Family Room
Take a break together as a family at the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Wollongong Hospital.
Our Ronald McDonald Family Room offers respite for you and your family while visiting or staying with a child in hospital. Step away from the ward and into our Family Room where our volunteers can make you a cup of tea or you can enjoy a freshly baked muffin or piece of cake. You’ll find a full kitchen, bathroom and laundry facilities, as well as a comfortable lounge space and children’s play area.
We want to make sure families have a home-away-from-home inside the Hospital, away from the clinical environment of the ward. That’s why our Family Room is free and open to all families whose children are undergoing inpatient or outpatient treatment at Wollongong Hospital.
Ronald McDonald Family Rooms are free of charge. Thanks to generous donations, families have a space away from the wards to relax and simply be together. If you would like to offer support or make a donation of goods to our Family Room, please contact our House.

Family Room Programs
Ronald McDonald Family Rooms rely on the work of our volunteers and the financial support of individual and corporate donations.
There are many ways you can contribute to our Family Room located in Wollongong Hospital.
Make a donation
As an individual, a group or corporate sponsor, you can assist through regular or one-off donations of money, goods or services, by sponsoring a room, or by organising or attending a fundraising event.
A rewarding and enriching experience, as a volunteer, you will witness the amazing difference you can make first-hand by assisting with day-to-day tasks, helping to run activities, or even something as simple as offering a welcoming smile and a listening ear to a family member in need.
Host a Fundraiser
Fundraising is an easy, meaningful and fun way to raise money. From sausage sizzles and trivia nights, to raising money on personal celebration days in lieu of gifts, you can give the gift of togetherness to families with seriously ill children.
