Ronald McDonald House Westmead gives seriously ill children the best gift of all – their families. Our House is a warm and supportive home-away-from-home for families of children travelling to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead for treatment. A safe and welcoming environment where families can stay connected, and parents can communicate more easily with their child's medical team. 2018 saw Ronald McDonald House Westmead completely transformed into a purpose-built, 60 room accommodation facility to be able to cater to more families in need. Our dedicated team of staff work together with a committed group of volunteers who generously give their time to make our families feel welcome and supported. Being forced to move your family far from home, work, school and your entire support network due to a child’s illness is extraordinarily tough. Our House has a wonderful community spirit, where you’ll be able to connect with other families going through experiences similar to your own. Our communal facilities also provide families with the independence to be able to cater for themselves and keep up with day-to-day living as much as possible. Our Westmead House also provides a 24 hour reception, free onsite parking, as well as kitchen and laundry facilities and recreational activities for children of all ages. Thanks to the dedication of local community and corporate groups, families can regularly enjoy home-cooked meals, educational support, school holiday programs and other personal touches to make getting through a tough time a little bit easier.
