Charity information

The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace

The Foundation is an educational peace charity which was set up after the 1993 IRA bombing of Warrington which killed 12 year old Tim Parry and 3 year old Johnathan Ball. It aims to inspire people to lead more peaceful lives. Through our innovative educational programmes we are reaching young people who are on the fringes of society, excluded or at risk of social exclusion and helping them to re-engage in learning and social opportunities. We are tackling grass-roots problems in communities which are suffering from racial tension and violence borne out of prejudice. Our work has helped over 18,000 young people since our purpose built 'Peace Centre' was opened in 2000.

We also work with adults who are victims/survivors of political violence (terrorism). The aim is to engage people in making a contribution to peace building by turning a painful and challenging experience into a positive opportunity for development, leadership and inspiration for others.
Our work is effective and making an impact both at a grass-roots and strategic level.
