Perth

We made Perth history in 2018 when we opened a new Ronald McDonald House and a Ronald McDonald Family Room located inside the walls of Perth Children’s Hospital. The new 14-bedroom House accommodates families of seriously ill children needing emergency medical treatment at Perth Children’s Hospital, meaning parents are only a few steps away from their child’s bedside.

This, our 18th Ronald McDonald Family Room, provides an area of support where families can come together and draw comfort from other support networks and chat with families in similar situations. Our Family Room also incorporates Kulunga Moort Mia, which connects and supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families from all over Western Australia with varying services to help them on their journey.
