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 now called A World With Friends 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.
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.
In 2017 we 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 in 2018 we held three proms. In May 2019 we held our 3rd Prom at the Portsmouth Guildhall.
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!
