Ronald McDonald House North Queensland

Ronald McDonald House is North Queensland’s most trusted children’s charity. Our mission is to support seriously ill and injured children and their families when they need each other most. Childhood illness can have a devastating effect on families. RMHNQ helps through practical programs and supportive care services:

House
North Queensland families travel to Townsville Hospital to access specialist children’s health services. Our House co-located with the hospital can accommodate over 100 people each night, allowing families to be there for their sick kids. We assist with travel, clothing, food and other essentials that families need during a medical emergency.

Family Retreat
Our Palm Cove Retreat gives families with a critically sick child the chance to take time out together for a fun family holiday or space to recover from a bereavement.

Learning Program
Our Learning Program allows children that have suffered serious and chronic illness to catch up on their schooling and provides scholarships to assist with further education.

Family Room
Designed to keep families together and functioning while they care for their child, Family Rooms are a place of respite away from clinical areas to share a meal, shower, wash clothes or catch up on sleep.

Impact
RMHNQ helps reduce stress, anxiety and financial burden for families when they are accessing medical care for their children. Research indicates families are better able to cope and focus on the needs of their sick child due to our support.

How your support makes a difference
As a charity, we rely solely on the generosity of the NQ community. McDonald’s, the charity’s founding Mission Partner, provides vital support to cover basic administration costs. This ensures that your donation helps even more families of seriously ill children in Australia.

Your support keeps sick kids close to their family when they need each other most.
