Crisis in council services stemming from underfunding of London boroughs

The 2017-18 local government finance settlement confirmed cuts to core funding of 26% in real terms over 3 years. This comes on top of a cumulative cut to core funding of over 50% in real terms since 2010-11, meaning core funding from central government to councils will have fallen by 63% in real terms over the decade to 2019-20.

Give an hour - and help build the Ark

Noah’s Ark currently supports over 160 children who are seriously unwell, 230 of their siblings and 350 of their parents / guardians. Our dedicated team do this by providing holistic, bespoke care. We need to provide more care for more children and their families. We need to construct The Ark, a specialist children’s hospice building. Fundraising is under way but we really need your help. The Ark will be set on a 7.5 acre nature reserve and be a home-from-home for children who are seriously unwell, where they will be given the time and space to be children and not just patients. It will provide an inspiring space for relaxation, adventure and for children and their families to connect with others facing similar challenges.
