What do we do?

We arrange a variety of events for children.  So far we have held Christmas parties,

discos, wheelchair basketball, gaming sessions, soft play sessions and indoor skiing.

Last year we also held the first ever Friend Finder Prom for chronically ill and disabled

young people at the Guildhall  in Portsmouth   The event was such a huge success

that we are having two proms this year.

We receive so many requests every day from/on behalf of young people all over the UK

and we are trying to reach as many of them as we can.  Unfortunately we are limited

by our ability to fund events.

Like a lot of charities we rely on donations from the public  We are a registered charity,

we do not employ staff and all of our volunteers work very hard to ensure that every

penny you donate is maximised!

Everyone Needs a Friend!

Friends make life better in so many ways; they encourage, support, challenge
and motivate us.


Chronically ill and disabled children miss time at school; this not only affects

their education, but also means they miss out on establishing friendships. 

Studies show that genuine friendships result in better health - something that

the children we help could definitely benefit from!   


Lewis Hine started Friend Finder as a 14 year old, who found himself

feeling lonely and isolated.  Lewis discovered that there are over 1 million

children in the UK suffering from a long term illness or disability that require time

away from school.

Lewis decided that he would bring as many children as he could to  have fun

and make friends
