Noah’s Ark Children’s hospice
Noah’s Ark Children’s hospice helps babies, children and young
people who have life-limiting or life-threatening conditions, and their
families, make the most of every day. We are here to enable those we support to
enjoy life as children, rather than as patients; as families, not just as
carers. Our expert staff and trained volunteers provide clinical, emotional,
and practical support for families across north and central London and Herts
Valley. We carefully adapt our support for every child and offer it wherever it
is required - whether in their home, their community or at our state-of-the-art
children’s hospice building, The Ark, in Barnet.
