Welcome to The Ark

We’ve now completed the building of 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.


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.


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.


"It was the best day of my life. So much fun and I learned so much. The families really enjoyed it too!"

"With Noah’s Ark, I know I can relax, let my guard down a little bit because I’m in a safe environment."

Toni, mother of Joe

"You can’t imagine what a difference you make to my son and our family. It is so comforting to know there is light at the end of the tunnel, and Noah’s Ark is helping us get there."
