 PARC (Essex) is a registered children's charity based in the beautiful setting of Great Notley Country Park, near Braintree in Essex.  

Our aim is to provide play and recreation facilities for children with additional needs and short break care for their families and carers.  

At PARC we believe, every child has a right to play, regardless of their individual needs or abilities.  


Above all PARC is a place where children can develop, learn and have fun, in a safe and friendly environment.  

We currently help support over 500 families within the Essex area and there is no formal referral process, parents can contact us directly.


If you are a parent of a child or children with any type of additional need, then please get in touch on 01376 528999

or email:

As a registered charity, we largely rely on the support of the local community.  All our services are provided at a greatly subsidised rate and our running costs increase every year as we care for a growing number of children and their families.
