Welcome to the Foundation for Peace

The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace is a charity that campaigns only for one thing.....For Peace. That is to say that conflict is inevitable, but using violence is not. 

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 has developed over a further 14 years and is independent and funded as a charity.  We do not take sides, we are not aligned to any conflict, we are not faith or political based and we do not pursue causes such as justice or truth.  There is no other organisation that takes such a stance.
