What You Can Do

Help us help even more families in need

When a child is diagnosed with a serious illness, it can have a devastating impact on families. As well as the uncertainty and fear, there’s added stress for families who don’t live close to the medical care their child needs.

Without your support, we would be unable to keep our doors open to families in need 365 days a year. Thanks to the public, we’ve been able to continually expand our operations to help more families.

There are many ways you can make a difference.

Donate now, create your own fundraising event or support an existing activity, request donations instead of gifts for your special celebrations, leave a tribute to a loved one, or volunteer at one of our Ronald McDonald Houses.

Home is where the heart is and the heart of RMHC WA is its volunteers. They are university students, corporate professionals, mums, dads, retirees; all walks of life giving back. Our ‘Blue Army’ share a passion and joy for helping fellow Western Australian kids and their families when they need it most.

We would not be able to provide the level of support we do without the incredible community of supporters from throughout Western Australia who give up their time to fundraise for WA’s sick kids

Help us support families with seriously ill children. Every dollar donated to RMHC WA goes directly to keeping families close to their child during one of the hardest times they will face.

Home for Dinner

A home cooked meal is often taken for granted and it’s for that reason we set up ‘Home for Dinner’. The program invites you to cook a meal from the heart, for the families staying at Ronald McDonald House Nedlands and Perth Children’s Hospital.

Lovin From The Oven

Lovin’ from the Oven gives you the opportunity to ‘bake a difference’ in the lives of families with a seriously sick or injured child. The donation of your time and baking talents can provide a temporary escape from the worry for families in need.
