Building the Ark Appeal
Completing our circle of care
A hospice building for children and families in Central and North London and Hertsmere
Our Building The Ark Appeal is raising the funds required to construct North London’s only children’s hospice building.
Complementing our sector-renowned ‘hospice at home’ and community-based services, a hospice building will allow us to offer a wider breadth of care to more of the 1,169 babies, children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions in our catchment area.
The hospice will be built on a 7.5 acre nature reserve close to Barnet town centre and will provide an inspiring space for relaxation and adventure, and for children and their families to connect with others facing similar challenges. It will be a ‘home from home’ for children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, where they will be given the time and space to be children and not just patients.
