Family Activities

Noah’s Ark aims to improve quality of life. Through our Family Activities programme we enable families to have fun, develop confidence, make friends and build a community of support. Activities are held mostly on weekends or in school holidays, exclusively for families supported by Noah’s Ark.

We recognise that there are potential barriers to play and leisure opportunities for children with life-limiting and life-threating conditions, many of whom are disabled and have complex needs. Noah’s Ark Family Days are all wheelchair accessible and designed to be inclusive, regardless of physical or cognitive ability. They give families a chance to meet others who are experiencing similar circumstances and create precious memories together.

The most recent addition to the programme is our Noah’s Ark Children’s Groups, which offer children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions time away from home without their family. Through these groups we aim to promote positive development, build a sense of independence and provide the opportunity to form friendships with their peers. Activities include immersive theatre, dance workshops, cookery and accessible sport.
