Welcome to The Ark

We’ve now completed the building of The Ark!

 

WhAt's THE ARK?

The Ark is set on a 7.5 acre nature reserve in Barnet. It’s a home-from-home for seriously unwell children, where they can be children and not just patients. It’s an inspiring space for relaxation, adventure and the opportunity for children and families to connect with others facing similar challenges.

WhY HAVE WE BUILD THE ARK?

Research found that there were over 1,200 children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions in our catchment area, but no children’s hospice. London was crying out for the facility, so we responded to the need and The Ark was completed in 2019.

WHAT NOW?

The Ark has been built to be a hub for children’s palliative care services in the area. It will be a place of life and light for over 300 families who we already work with and hundreds more. But we still need your support to help us to bring The Ark to life.

Testimonials

"We shared so many firsts with Noah's Ark - Ellie's first park trip, her first footprint - they will stay in our hearts forever. The team always had a supreme optimism about what Ellie could do."

Michael, father of Eli

"I have never seen the girls so excited and so happy in my life – their eyes were lighting up like diamonds! What a treasured memory you have given us."

Mother of a Noah's Ark child

"I’m forever indebted to Noah’s Ark for all of the support they have given, and continue to give me and my family. Noah’s Ark is a huge part of my world, and I know they will always be there for me and my family to help in any way they can. The support they give is priceless. Without it, I know things would be different for me and my children."

Shani, mother of Kye
