Noah's Ark Trust is a registered charity that was founded in 1998 to provide grief support to bereaved children and young people in Worcestershire, England. It is funded with grants from Children in Need, Comic Relief, the Big Lottery Fund, Worcestershire County Council, and other donations. The service has offices in Worcester and Hererford. Although Families may contact them direct, many referrals come from schools, family doctors, health visitors, youth officers, and other professionals directly involved with children.

With full-time counsellors and the help of over 60 volunteers who have all completed the Noah's Ark in-house Training Programme, the trust also organises residential weekends at the Malvern Hills Outdoor Centre in West Malvern, which is owned and administered by Worcestershire County Council. The weekends provide young people aged 5 – 18 and their families with the opportunity to make friends with others who have also experienced the loss of a close relative, and share their bereavement.
