Maintenance Volunteers

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.

A Police background check is required for this role.
