The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace was established as a living memorial to two children, Tim Parry and Johnathan Ball, killed in the IRA bombing of Warrington in 1993. Tim’s parents, Colin and Wendy Parry, with support of Johnathan’s parents, set up the organisation to provide a peaceful alternative to resolving conflict violently. For twenty years, beginning in a Warrington bedroom and now operating out of our purpose-built residential Peace Centre, in Warrington (North West UK), the Foundation for Peace has been working to prevent violent extremism, resolve violent conflicts through dialogue, and respond to the needs of victims and survivors of terrorism and political violence. The Foundation for Peace runs a number of different projects and services in schools, colleges and in community settings, looking at breaking the cycle of violence and finding peaceful means of resolving conflict.
