What We Do

what_we_do

The Foundation works nationally to support those affected by terrorism and conflict, including veterans and victims of terror attacks. We support young people to turn away from violence, and we work to build stronger communities without prejudice and discrimination. Through our work we equip people with the skills to use their traumatic experience in order to do something positive, for their own wellbeing and to help their communities. 

We also work at the civic level, providing training to professionals and agencies including local government, in order to shape and steer policy and best practice.  We are an international focus point for research and information for those organisations which come across victims of terrorism in their work.

We support victims of terrorism to rebuild their lives

Bombing attacks are well planned and targeted, but who they affect is indiscriminate of age, background, ethnicity or faith.  Victims are isolated in their communities, often with no form of support, particularly in the longer term. We support survivors of acts of terror and politically motivated violence such as the 7/7 London bombings, Sharm el Sheikh and the Northern Ireland ‘Troubles’. We bring survivors together to share their experiences and support each other’s welfare. Through this process we enable them to overcome their trauma and use their experience positively within their own lives and wider community.

We support those who risked their lives to keep us safe

Every year the Foundation for Peace supports veterans, police, ambulance and fire & rescue personnel. Many are traumatised by what they have witnessed while undertaking their professional duties on behalf of their communities. We work with them to provide the skills to overcome trauma and to use such experiences in a positive way. We are the only UK organisation doing this vital work.

We support communities by challenging prejudice and discrimination

The Foundation is tackling key issues affecting society today - prejudice, discrimination and violence within and between communities.

Our Case Studies

“My first contact with the Foundation was in 2009. I had a novel published that year, about a man’s struggle to recover from the trauma of a terrorist bomb. An article about the book appeared in the Warrington Guardian, and the Foundation team contacted me as a result. I called in, met with the team and..." Read more »
