Ronald McDonald House Tamworth
A place to call home - Ronald McDonald House in Tamworth is for families with children undergoing care at Tamworth Hospital.
Our Tamworth House gives seriously ill children the best gift of all – their families. Our house is a warm and supportive home-away-from-home for families with children receiving treatment at Tamworth Hospital.
Over 150 families a year stay with us here in Tamworth. Our comfortable and furnished family bedrooms provide a homely experience for families when they need it most, while our common areas allow for shared journeys and unwavering support.
Ronald McDonald House understands that being away from home for long periods of time can put families under financial pressure. That’s why our accommodation is free for eligible families of seriously ill children. While our policy is to provide free accommodation, your stay at the House may require you to claim financial support towards accommodation and travel from the relevant government transport assistance scheme in your home state.
To find out if you’re eligible for government financial assistance, contact your hospital social worker or talk to one of our team.
