We help children who are seriously unwell make the most of every day
We are here to enable those we support to enjoy life as children, rather than as patients; as families, not just as carers. Partnering with London NHS trusts,we have built a home, a community and an expert team to make that difference.
Healthcare Assistants needed
We’re looking for Healthcare Assistants who want to spend more time with the babies, children and young people they look after – to help them make the most of every day. You’ll be based in our state-of-the-art children’s hospice building, The Ark, set in a north London nature reserve. It’s a place of laughter, play and real connection for children who are seriously unwell, with an atmosphere that’s both supportive and inclusive.
Palliative care experience is welcomed, but not essential. You will be given all the training you need to support children throughout their lives, and at the end of their lives.

Noah’s Ark’s willingness to break the mould by committing to training in this area and supporting Long-Term Ventilated children is laudable and the Noah’s Ark team’s ethos of providing excellent care is palpable.
Mother of child in Noah’s Ark care
Everything about Noah’s Ark just works, unlike other services. The communication with Katie, our Specialist Carer, with Adele, our Family Link Worker and with Kirsty, the Music Therapist – it’s a whole family approach and we really feel valued. And Katie offers so much more than just ‘care.
Toni, Joe’s mum
They’re our family now. We all know where the journey will end and we want it to be somewhere that we feel loved and accepted with people we know around. We couldn’t imagine anywhere better than The Ark.
Mother of George, a baby supported by Noah’s Ark the end of his life
Noah’s Ark’s Music Therapist joined us on the day of George’s compassionate extubation (removal of breathing support). It was very comforting to know that he was surrounded by familiar pleasant sounds associated with happy and calm times we had together. For one last time we were able to experience being a family of three.’
Magnus has had some tremendous experiences here and some amazing memories have been made. It really is a Gold Star Operation, and with some of the highest standard of care that we’ve seen in our journey with Magnus. Through everything, it will continue to be a priority for us that he continues to come here.
