About us

The Peace Alliance is a National Charity working with communities to reduce crime and increase community cohesion, born in a response to the rise in knife crimes across London. With its mission to provide opportunities for volunteering, mentoring and training to promote social cohesion and a sense of belonging, for young people not in education, employment or training (NEET) or at risk of becoming NEET, the Week of Peace was developed.

This year, we all have the chance to mark the centenary of the end of World War 1.

On Sunday, 11 November 2018, people around the country will observe Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day. As well as reflecting on loss, this year also gives us the chance to look forward as we mark the end of World War 1 and pray for peace.

Remembrance100 has been set up by HOPE, in partnership with a cross section of Christian denominations and ministries, to help churches bring communities together to mark the centenary of the end of World War 1. There are many ways in which communities, churches or schools can get involved.
