Our Charity for 2017 / 2018

Noah's Ark Children's Hospice

(Charity Number 1081156)



Every parent wants the best for their child. Meeting a child’s needs can be a challenge at the best of times, but for the parents of a seriously ill child, that challenge is even greater. Noah's Ark Children's Hospice know that a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition often requires 24/7 care; many are in and out of hospital, and for some families, simply getting out of the house can prove an overwhelming task. Noah’s Ark is there to help these families.

Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice is a community based hospice service providing support for children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families in North London and Hertsmere. The children they work with have a range of conditions and often have very complex needs. Their services aim to help the children, their siblings and parents make the most of the time they have together, and Noah’s Ark will continue to support the families after bereavement.

Noah’s Ark is in a period of significant growth, as they expand their Hospice-at-Home services and begin the construction of what will be the only children’s hospice building in North London. The new hospice will offer 24-hour end-of-life care and specialist palliative care clinics, creative therapies and much more. It will be set on a 7.5 acre nature reserve on Byng Road in Barnet. Once completed, the hospice will complement Noah’s Ark’s existing community based services, to complete their circle of care for children with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses and their families.
