About the organisation

Noah's Ark Children's Hospice

Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice is a community based hospice service providing clinical, emotional and practical support for families of children and young people with life-limiting/life-threatening conditions in the North London Boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey, Islington and Hertsmere.

Our current services include Specialist Play, Specialist Care, Family Activities, volunteer support in the home and a Family Link service. Noah’s Ark volunteers are the backbone of our charity and play a crucial part in providing these services.

Noah’s Ark supports families to ensure that they can face the future with hope by providing a variety of essential support services. These services include a Family Link Team who are trained Social Workers, Specialist Carers who provide respite, Play Specialists who provide therapeutic play sessions and also our Family Support Volunteer team.
