Noah's Ark Children's Hospice - Volunteer Ambassador

Details of the Charity:

We help babies, children and young people with life-threatening or life-limiting conditions, and their families, make the most of every day. And we support those who die young to do so in as much comfort as possible, surrounded by family. We are here to enable those we support to enjoy life as children, rather than as patients; as families, not just as carers.

 

We are one of the UK’s leading children’s hospices, providing care for over 350 children and their families every year. We believe that every baby, child, and young person who is seriously unwell, and their loved ones, should have access to expert and compassionate palliative care from the moment of diagnosis.
