Project Description

LEWIS HINE

Age 16, Portsmouth

I started Friend Finder when I was 14 years old. Like most 14 year olds, I was interested in football, music, video games and just being a teenager but unlike most young people I need 24hr support due to my long-term illnesses. I spend a great deal of time in hospital, and so I created an online portal to help disabled and poorly children come together and make friends.

I also held a prom for those who missed their own through illness – which was such a huge success that we’re doing it again next year!
