About our work

The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation was founded by the parents of 12-year-old Tim Parry and supported by the parents of 3-year-old Johnathan Ball. Both Tim and Johnathan were tragically killed as a direct result of the IRA’s 1993 bombing of Warrington. The Foundation works nationally and internationally for peace and nonviolent conflict resolution.
