Working with Voluntary Agencies

Centre-from-garden-600x403Voluntary Agencies in the Northwest are not a ‘sector’ like any other. They have their own distinct ways of organising themselves. Cheshire Resilience Forum works alongside many voluntary agencies to ensure resilient communities across Cheshire.

The voluntary sector has an important role to play in supporting the statutory services in response to many emergencies.

The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace is a British based charity (charity no.1048990) created 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 as part of its political agenda to force Britain to withdraw from Northern Ireland . The Foundation is dedicated to providing conflict resolution programmes and activities that benefit children, young people, adults, schools and communities everywhere.

In co-operation with partners from different countries, the Foundation has undertaken international programmes to share experiences in conflict resolution strategies and to identify the skills which promote effective and ethical leadership in areas where violent conflict is a reality.
