Ronald McDonald Family Rooms

Get away from it all, even if you're just down the hall

A welcoming respite from the ward, moments from your child’s bedside.

Our Ronald McDonald Family Rooms are located inside major hospitals and are exclusively for the families of children undergoing treatment in a nearby ward. Run by our friendly volunteers, our Family Rooms are welcoming spaces where you can take time out from the clinical environment of the wards, have a tea or coffee, freshen up with a shower or find a quiet space for a much-needed nap. Our Family Rooms also have dedicated play areas so the siblings of seriously ill children can have a bit of fun.


Because of the Ronald McDonald Family Room, for a tiny minute you get to stop and rest. You walk in and it’s like a home and you can breathe.
