Charities of the Year PARC Essex

PARC exists to provide support to families who have a child or children with any type of additional need from a very early stage.  We have a range of children on our books including those with speech and language difficulties, autistic spectrum, epilepsy and those with physical and learning difficulties.

PARC offers services that covers a wide range of activities with children of every age and ability, including pre-school services, activities clubs, youth clubs, sports clubs and weekend and holiday respite. We also offer Sunday morning “stay and play”. Above all PARC is a place where Children can develop, learn and have fun, in a safe and friendly environment that caters for their special needs.

PARC-Essex has been developed by a group of parents who have children with additional needs and has grown to help over 250 families with special needs children. PARC has recently moved into its £550,000 purpose built Play And Resource Centre building, with fantastic facilities including a large main hall, kitchen and meeting rooms, sensory rooms, and ball play area. PARC-Essex also has an outdoor adventure playground.
