Welcome to The Ark

We’ve completed the building of The Ark!

 

WhAt's THE ARK?

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

WhY HAVE WE BUILT 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 is a hub for children’s palliative care services in our catchment area. It's a place of life and light for over 300 families who work with - and will enable us to support so many more. 

 

Testimonials

"It is crucial for us when selecting a charity partner that the charity be more than just a good cause. The charity has to have inspirational and strategic leaders and a commitment to total transparency. Noah’s Ark instilled confidence from our first meeting and the partnership has gone from strength to strength."

Donna-Maria Cullen, Executive Director of Tottenham Hotspur FC

"The new hospice building will be a great place for many London families facing challenging times. They’ll be able to connect and meet with other families with similar experiences, which is always a huge help! It’s wonderful to know that there’s a local spot for families to be able to spend time with their loved ones in a comfortable environment."

Shakila, mother of Jibraan
