PARCA provides a safe and welcoming space for children in young people who live our local area. Our weekly program of clubs and activities are child and young person led and help them have fun, overcome barriers, and try new things.
We are committed to Every Child Matters:

Staying safe: being protected from harm and neglect
Enjoying and achieving: getting the most out of life and developing the skills for
Making a positive contribution: Being involved with the community and society and not engaging in anti-social or offending behaviour
Economic well-being: not being prevented by economic disadvantage from achieving their full potential in life
Our clubs welcome a variety of children and young people who might have lots of different barriers and challenges in their lives. The clubs focus on fun activities that help build skills, confidence and peer relationships.
Children and young people are encouraged to be active members of the clubs and have a big say in what activities they can do. Our clubs are open to anyone in the local area and operate on a drop-in basis.
Initial registration is required when they arrive!
We also provide a program of activities during Easter and Summer school holidays as well as yearly residential breaks where children and young people are involved in a variety of outdoor activities.
