Ronald McDonald House, Cardiff
Willmott Dixon Contact
We're excited to be building our first ever Ronald McDonald House in Wales. It will provide free 'home away from home' accommodation for families who have children being treated at the Noah's Ark Children's Hospital and the neo-natal intensive care unit at University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff.
Going to a hospital far from home can be a frightening experience for a child; it's important that they have their families close by for love and comfort. Ronald McDonald House Cardiff will provide free accommodation for these families, somewhere they can call home when they're miles from their own front door. It offers support and a safe environment where families can share their experiences with others in similar situations.
The House will have 30 en-suite bedrooms as well as kitchens, lounges, playroom areas, and laundry facilities It will cost over £5.5 million to construct.
The children's hospital expects to provide specialist medical care for up to 100,000 children each year. The existing hospital accommodation is not able to accommodate every family who needs to stay close to their sick child. Once open, the Ronald McDonald House will be able to support 30 families each night of the year, completely free of charge.
Steel framed building over 4 floors. This construction is on a tight site next to the Hospital. Our site team are fund-raising for Ronald Macdonald charity so please make a donation during your tour.
