During the ‘crisis’ period, the Peace Foundation will operate as follows:

The Peace Foundation will continue to support victims of violent conflict (war and terrorism) through ‘remote contact’ and our caseworkers and clinical professionals will continue to offer all support.  Anyone needing support should contact SAN@peace-foundation.org.uk NOTE: This service is under review and may be replaced in October 2020.

The Peace Foundation will offer health and well-being support services to victims of the Northern Ireland Troubles domiciled in Great Britain, and in addition will administer an enhanced Covid 19 welfare support package to certain victims in parity with provision being made available in Northern Ireland.

The programmes offered in counter terrorism safeguarding (PREVENT), and community cohesion Have recommenced as we gain access to key education and community locations.  The Government is no longer funding counter extremism work.   All employees working on these programmes, along with our support colleagues, have returned to work, although based from their homes.  We have a new approach to bio security and a blended curriculum of distanced working using technology solutions and carefully planned on site interventions.

The Peace Centre in Warrington reopens on 14th September and is available for hire under new bio secure provisions.  Download our fact sheet – Covid 19 Peace Centre fact sheet

The continued operation of the Peace Foundation at this time has been made possible by the generosity of the Steve Morgan Foundation, the Rank Foundation, commissioning by the Northern Ireland Victims and Survivors Service, the Youth Endowment Fund, and the Warrington and Halton NHS  Hospitals Trust, and by the Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

We will continue to review and update our beneficiaries on a regular basis. www.peace-foundation.org.uk
