Noah’s Ark WA service transitioning

Unfortunately, we have had to make the difficult decision to transition the Noah’s Ark WA service on 31 January 2018.

Our priority now is to assist families who use Noah’s Ark services and connect them with services that can support them into the future.

The Noah’s Ark WA service will continue to be fully operational for members up until Thursday 21 December 2017.

We encourage existing family members who would like to source alternative support or services for their child to make contact with their primary therapist or support organisation to discuss the best options with them.

For families who do not have a primary therapist we encourage them to make contact with us and we will support them with their options moving forward.

As a not for profit organisation, we are focused on providing the highest quality services to the community. However the reality is that Noah’s Ark WA has high operational costs and requires a significant amount of ongoing funding from third parties to enable it to continue.

We are in discussions with a number of organisations who have indicated they may be interested in taking on parts of Noah’s Ark services and assets, including the toys. The outcomes of these discussions will be communicated once known.

We are ensuring that we are keeping funders and key stakeholders up to date with regard to the transition of the service.

If you have any queries about the transition of Noah’s Ark services, please contact Service Manager Christa Riegler on (08) 9381 0600 or christa.riegler@ilc.com.au.

We thank everyone who has supported and assisted Noah’s Ark over the years, including members, funders, staff, volunteers, suppliers and service providers.

    Dear Jacqui
    I’ve not heard of your library before reading about it on Facebook just now.
    What does the library require in order to remain open? Is there any time to organise a viable structure for fundraising before closure? Or does your crew have plans for reopening in a different framework?
    Warm regards
    Sarah
