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

"Nobody can take Alonso’s illnesses away but over the last seven years, Noah’s Ark’s wonderful social workers and carers have put a smile on our faces, have fought for us, and given me a safe space to cry my tears, so I can stay strong for Alonso. Noah’s Ark is like a family to us now."

Enkeledja, mother of Alonso

"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

"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."
