We are currently funding over 75 projects across the UK, funding research into pre eclampsia, stillbirth and other pregnancy related conditions, into severe asthma, heart disease, epilepsy, cancer and rare diseases and into supporting children with cerebral palsy, autism and down syndrome to name but a few. Action fight for little lives – please help us raise awareness and much needed funds to support our vital work.
LITTLE PEOPLE UK
Little People UK (LPUK) was co-founded in January 2012 by actor Warwick Davis, his
wife Samantha and a group of individuals with the same goal; to offer friendship and
support to people with dwarfism, their families and friends, and helping build a positive
future for those individuals. Since it’s inception, LPUK has become a registered charity
and an essential resource for the social, medical and financial needs of the little people
community in the UK. To date, it has attracted over 300 members, along with support from
highly respected doctors and physiotherapists, with a particular interest in helping
individuals with dwarfism.
Over five years LPUK has held Annual Conventions, along with other smaller events/
workshops throughout the year, created a new website, developed an Equipment Loan
Scheme and released a guidebook on DLA/PIP transition. Delegates also attended the
2016 International Dwarfism Leadership Summit in Berlin.
LPUK relies solely on fundraisers to sustain the support we offer our members, every
contribution is essential.
LPUK employs one member of staff and has a volunteer committee; made up of people
with dwarfism and average height individuals, making for a very fair and compassionate
group who can meet the needs of everyone.
