Helping Charities


Center Parcs has a proud history of helping charities that make a difference to families across the UK. It is not just our responsibility but our passion to support and to help organisations that share our ethos of bringing and keeping families together.

We have a main corporate charity partner and we match fund donations made by our guests either through our website or Contact Centre. Typically this partnership runs for three years. We also donate short breaks to a number of charities each year and also help with individual requests where possible.

We are delighted to partner with Together for Short Lives and we hope that from June 2016, we will help to raise awareness and vital funds to support more than 49,000 families who are caring for a child with a life-shortening condition.

Together with everyone who provides care and support to these children and families, Together for Short Lives is here to help families have as fulfilling lives as possible and the very best care at the end of life.


As part of their work Together for Short Lives raise money for the UK’s 54 children’s hospice services that deliver lifeline care and support to families right across the country. All children’s hospice services are charities, relying overwhelmingly on public generosity to continue to provide their vital services. We hope that through this partnership we can make a real difference to the work of children’s hospices and help more families to make the most of their precious time together.


In addition to our main corporate charity partnership with Together for Short Lives, between spring 2016 and spring 2017, we have also pledged to offer break donations to the following charitable causes so they can give families they support some all-important time together.


• Ally Cadence Trust for Spinal Muscular Atrophy
• Amy’s Retreat
• Give Us Time
• Josie’s Dragonfly Trust
• Leon Barwell Foundation
• Lynsey Ivison Trust
• Make-A-Wish
• Teenage Cancer Trust
• Willow Foundation


We receive a huge volume of charity requests each week and we consider each and every one. However, whilst we try to spread our support as much as possible, but due to the sheer volume we receive, unfortunately, we can’t help with every request made.


If you would like to make a request, please contact our PR team by emailing and we will get back to you if we are able to offer our support.


Together for Short Lives is a registered charity in England and Wales (1144022) and Scotland (SC044139) and a company limited by guarantee (7783702).
