Over 1,500 families with a seriously sick or injured child rely on our support every year. 

Ronald McDonald House Charities Greater Western Sydney (RMHC GWS) has provided a life-changing home away from home and holistic support to families with sick and injured children, since 1981.

Our 6o room House in Westmead supports over 1,500 families every year. Having left their homes and support network behind to access critical hospital treatment for their child, our House becomes their haven. But it's only possible thanks to our generous community.

Ten-year-old Olivia (pictured with her Mum Rebecca) was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in May 2023.  Leaving Bathurst with her parents and two siblings for life-saving treatment in Westmead, Olivia's family called our House home for over four months.

"Thankyou so much for everything you have done for us. You have definitely helped our family to create some beautiful memories at a difficult time". Rebecca, Olivia's Mum.

Your support will make an everlasting impact for families like the Cantrills

The Cantrill family have spent over 164 nights at Ronald McDonald House Westmead.

"Our 13-month old son... Judd has a genetic disorder which has caused abnormalities of his lungs, stomach, heart (the list goes on). 

Because of Ronald McDonald House, their team and the volunteers I have been able to keep our 3 kids together in an environment full of support and love.

To be so close to the hospital and have the people of Ronald McDonald House supporting us through our journey, means the world to us and we are forever grateful to all."

- Alana Cantrill, Mum of Judd
