Our Mission / Objective

We’re all about family.

When a child is seriously ill, it can disrupt every aspect of family life – from school and work, to everyday moments like meal times, bath times, play times and quality time. This can have a devastating effect on the whole family. Ronald McDonald House Charities® helps family life carry on while a child is undergoing treatment. Since 1981, we’ve helped thousands of Australian families through their most difficult times.

We keep families of seriously ill children together and close to the care their child needs. 

Our Services

Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) creates, finds and supports programs across Australia that help seriously ill children and their families. 

RMHC® supports a number of programs that help seriously ill children:

  • 18 Ronald McDonald Houses
  • 19 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms
  • Ronald McDonald® Learning Program
  • 5 Ronald McDonald® Family Retreats
  • Ronald McDonald® Care Mobile
  • Ronald McDonald® Hospitality Cart

Our Beneficiaries

Since we began in 1981, Ronald McDonald House Charities has been supporting the ever changing needs of seriously ill and injured children and their families, during what is often the most stressful time of their lives. Today, through our four core Programs – Ronald McDonald Houses, Family Rooms, Learning Program and Family Retreats as well as Care Mobile and our Hospitality Cart – we are able to help 60,000 families every year, forming an essential part of Australia’s health care infrastructure and education systems.

As these Programs are only possible through the generous help of our many supporters and partners, we wanted to reveal the true extent of the incredible impact that your support has on the lives of so many.

To make this possible, we carried out research to measure our Social Return on Investment*. Developed through an internationally recognised framework for understanding, measuring, and valuing social, economic, and environmental outcomes, the research allowed us to understand the outcomes that had been achieved through the Programs. By measuring the positive change these outcomes have had on peoples’ lives, we are able to place dollar value on the impact we have achieved – this is known as the ‘social and economic value’.

Looking at the total contribution from supporters and partners, for every $1 invested, RMHC is able to return $3.60 of social and economic value.

Behind this 360% return sits a powerful story about the life changing impact the Programs have on the mental, physical and financial wellbeing of seriously ill and injured children, families and communities, as well as the important contribution they make to the country’s health and education systems.

From everyone at RMHC and on behalf of all those you have helped, we wish to thank you for your continued support. Without you, none of this would be possible.
