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

"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

"The positive and motivating atmosphere created by Noah’s Ark staff, volunteers and guests reinforces my personal commitment all the more. We all need to collectively work together to, among other creative ways of supporting, help build The Ark and provide a joyful place of support for the children and families."

Louiza, Community Ambassador

"This wonderful charity has been like one big family, aiding us through joyous and sorrowful moments. They are always eager to help and most importantly, thanks to them, all the children are happy and they feel included."
