Welcome to Ronald McDonald House, Alder Hey Liverpool
Since 1993 we have provided home from home accommodation for the families of seriously ill children receiving care and treatment at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. Every year more than 2,000 families come through our doors; we offer support and a safe place, just a stone’s throw away from the hospital, as they experience the toughest time of their lives
We are still following social distancing measures, with restricted numbers of families staying with us, which means we are not able to welcome family visitors, siblings, supporters, or our dedicated team of volunteers back just yet. Some of our team members are also still working from home, to protect everyone at Mac House.
As a charity we have found the past few months a struggle, as fundraising has almost come to a stop, with planned events cancelled. We know we are not the only charity in this position, but we do need to remind everyone that we rely purely on donations from our loyal supporters.
For more information on fundraising and how you can get involved please check our FAQs or read about how other supporters are raising funds for us Meet Anthony Hoare
We continue to offer families the best service we can even if it is still at a distance, and we hope everyone keeps well and safe as we move into the new normal, looking forward to a time when the house is buzzing with visitors, children and families once again. The past months have been an enormous challenge not only for staff and trustees, but for families who have continued to need and use our service.
