Meet our Families

At Noah’s Ark, your goals are our goals. Our Key Workers work closely with your family in order to secure the best outcomes for your children. Here’s some of their stories.

In a few years time you’ll probably look back on this and think ‘oh, I was so stressed about it’… But it will be alright. You will get there.

Without the support of Noah’s Ark I actually don’t know where we’d be with Zoe right now. I don’t even know whether she’d still be at school.

I couldn’t sleep for days before your first visit. I was so worried … but you were so reassuring and I felt so much better. The best thing was that you listened to me. You really listened. I had the best sleep after that appointment. Knowing that someone is going to be there to help…
