It was formed in 1995 by Colin and Wendy Parry, following the loss of their 12-year-old son Tim and 3-year-old Johnathan Ball in the 1993 Warrington bomb attacks, which were perpetrated by the Provisional Irish Republican Army.[3][4]

The Foundation raises money through donation, corporate support, sponsoring a participant, support from charitable trusts and foundations, Big Lottery Fund, Gifts in Kind, Gift Aid, In memoriam donations.[5]

The Peace Centre[edit]

A purpose-built youth and community education and recreation centre was launched jointly with the foundation and the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) in 2000. The launch coincided with the seven-year anniversary of the IRA bombings. The centre is located on Peace Drive, at the intersection of Cromwell Avenue and Sankey Way, next to St Gregory's High School.

The Peace Centre currently houses the NSPCC, The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation and the Warrington Youth Club.[6]
