Charity Partnerships

Center Parcs has a proud history of supporting charities that make a difference to families across the UK. We are passionate about supporting organisations that share our ethos of bringing and keeping families together.

Since June 2016 our main corporate charity partner in the UK has been Together for Short Lives, the charity that supports seriously ill children and their families so they can make the most of every moment they have together. We are proud to match fund donations made by our guests either through our website or Contact Centre and donate 25 breaks a year to the charity.

Together for Short Lives raise awareness and funds for the UK’s 54 children’s hospices to deliver lifeline care and support to children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and their families. During our partnership we hope to raise awareness and vital funds to support the thousands of families who are caring for a seriously ill child.

Visit the Together for Short Lives website to learn more about this incredible charity.

As well as national support, each Center Parcs village fundraises for their local children’s hospice, allowing them to make a real difference to their local community. Find out which hospices our villages support below:

In addition to our partnership with Together for Short Lives, between spring 2019 and 2020, we have pledged break donations to the following charities, so they can give families in need of support some precious time together:

Center Parcs receives a huge volume of charity requests each week and, whilst we try to spread our support as much as possible, we are unable to help with every request due to the sheer volume.

If you would like to make a request, please contact our PR team by emailing charity.request@centerparcs.co.uk with as much detail as possible. You will receive an automated response acknowledging your email and we will get back to you within four weeks if we can help. Please note, we are unable to provide donations or prizes for raffles, auctions or fairs.

For information on our charity partnership in Ireland, please visit www.centerparcs.ie.

Jamie's family

"We had a lovely time at Center Parcs, it is so hard going somewhere where my sons needs are catered for. Such a memorable break for us all. We really did have a lovely time, so nice to get away from our normal daily life."
