Welcome to the Foundation for Peace

The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace is a charity that works nationally and internationally to promote peace and non-violent conflict resolution.

The Foundation for Peace was founded by the parents of 12-year old Tim Parry and supported by the parents of three year old Johnathan Ball. Tim and Johnathan were tragically killed as a direct result of the IRA’s bombing of Warrington in March 1993.

The Foundation works with people affected by political violence and acts of terror to SUPPORT them in dealing with their past experiences and using them as the motivation for creating positive change.  We work with people of all backgrounds to PREVENT violent conflict by helping them to develop the skills and understanding to be able to resolve conflict through non-violent means and ways.  We provide TRAINING and GUIDANCE to leaders and managers, including those at Government level, on how to deal with past, present and future conflicts.

Find out how you can get involved, or how we can help your company or organisation through the Resolution Training Company.
