The Foundation is housed in the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Centre – informally known as the “Peace Centre”.

The Centre is a purpose built £3million building just 1 ½ miles from Warrington town centre.

The cedar-clad building is dramatic and impressive – it is designed ‘to represent the shape of a dove of peace’ in a sweeping angular way, which accentuates its uniqueness, its warmth, its friendliness, openness and the whole theme of peace.

Set in its own landscaped grounds, the centre borders the picturesque Sankey Valley Park which has footpaths and nature trails extending along the banks of the Sankey Canal.

The purpose of the residential part of the Centre is to provide a safe environment for national and international groups wishing to explore sensitive issues surrounding peace and reconciliation.
