Bataclan Paris Attacks one year on – Foundation support announced

This weekend, the Survivors Assistance Network will be in Paris to support UK survivors of the attack on the Bataclan theatre on 13th November 2015.

On 13th November 2015, multiple terrorist attacks were launched across Paris including at an international football match at the Stade de France and at a music venue, the Bataclan.

The attackers killed 130 people, including 89 at the Bataclan theatre. Another 368 people were injured, 80–99 seriously. Seven of the attackers also died.

This was the biggest attack in France since World War II and in response, a three-month state of emergency was declared across the country to help fight terrorism.

Next weekend there will be tributes and commemorations of one of the biggest terrorist attacks in Europe, and the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace, who operate the UK Survivors Assistance Network (SAN), will deploy specialist caseworkers and clinical support and will accompany British victims and survivors as they travel back to Paris.
