Who’s eligible to stay?

Our primary goal is to provide safe and reliable short and long-term accommodation for families who need to travel away from their homes to receive medical treatment at Perth Children’s Hospital or King Edward Memorial Hospital.

We understand that being away from home for medical treatment can put families under financial pressure. That’s why our accommodation is free for eligible families with ill or injured children or maternity patients.

While our policy is to provide free accommodation, your stay at Ronald McDonald House Charities WA will require you to complete the relevant Patient Assisted Travel Scheme (PATs) paperwork.
