What do we do?

We arrange a variety of events for children and young people age 5-25.

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

In 2017 we held the first ever A World With Friends Prom for chronically ill and disabled young people at the Guildhall in Portsmouth. The event was such a huge success that in its now an annual event.  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.

Support A World with Friends to put on the 'night of dreams': Prom 2023!!!

Every year, A World with Friends puts on a prom to give children that missed their prom through illness, a night that they will never forget. Everyone should have the chance to dress up, dance and make great memories with friends at their prom, and our proms put the biggest of smiles on lots of faces - and we have an opportunity for you, or your organisation to help make this an extra special night!

At our prom in 2023, we will have tables that you can sponsor! You, or your organisation can sponsor tables for £1000 and help make this an extra special night for so many children. Your sponsorship will provide a prom night for 10 amazing young people and their families. You, or your organisation can put a personalised message for the table and any decorations or gifts to help the guests understand who you are and why you have sponsored the table. It can be as a simple message or whole page about who sponsored the table.

Your sponsorship will help us put on amazing night including: putting on an array of entertainment, providing amazing food (and lots of sweets!), and making our gift packages that will make sure the prom lasts long in the memory of all those that come along. Your donation will help us put on a night the children will never forget.

 Supporting our prom is a great opportunity for any community outreach or social impact commitments your organisation may have.

A World With Friends makes 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, now called A World With Friends as a 14 year old, when he 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 together to have fun

and make friends and started the charity  A WORLD WITH FRIENDS
