E – Extremism challenge that needs resolving

A – A fact people might know about the Foundation

C – Colleague at the Foundation you want people to get to know

E – Everyone can help the cause of peace by….

Here are Laura’s answers:

P – Project at the Foundation everyone should know about

Bridging communities is a lottery funded project spanning 3 years of delivery. This project is directly linked to the Foundation for Peace founding aim: to break the cycle of violent conflict. A programme of work will be delivered across four key communities within the North of England working with young people, parents, women’s groups, key community stakeholders, teachers and faith leaders (among others). This programme of work (consisting of a number of courses and community dialogue events) aims to embed key skills within communities for them to create a collective lasting community plan to promote peace and community resilience.

E – Extremism challenge that needs resolving

Immigration and economic strains are becoming connected leading to polarisation and potentially violent conflict. Separated communities need to come together to understand conflict and take proactive steps to building a deeper understanding of one another.

A – A fact people might know about the Foundation

The Foundation takes no sides, and is an organisation like no other.  It is without any political or faith agenda.

C – Colleague at the Foundation you want people to get to know

Jonathan Levy is Fundraiser for the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace.   Jonathan is an award-winning disability campaigner and in 2014, appeared in a highly-acclaimed short film on ‘Embarrassing Bodies – Live From The Clinic’, raising awareness of dyspraxia.

E – Everyone can help the cause of peace by….
