At Ronald McDonald House we provide a home away from home for families travelling to hospital with their child who needs specialist treatment. As with all households, there is always something that needs fixing, maintaining or sorting out. The impact you will make in just a few hours is huge, providing a welcoming environment for our families and for them to feel comfortable and 'at home'. You just can't put a price on it.
Practical people who are able to turn their hand to anything to help out. Experience of being in a maintenance or caretaker role is an advantage but not essential. No 'specialist' training or qualifications are needed, you won't be required to do specific skilled maintenance jobs such as plumbing unless you're qualified to do so. This is a fun and varied role, you will quickly lean your way around the house whilst interacting with other volunteers, staff and families.
Most volunteers commit to one 3 hour shift once a week or once a fortnight. Shifts available are Monday - Sunday from 9am-12pm however we can be flexible with these timings.
The first step is to express your interest by applying directly to the organisation. You will then be able to find out more about the role and how to proceed.
