Delegates from Little People UK were honoured to take part in the 'International Dwarfism Leadership Summit' in Berlin this last weekend. Representing LPUK were, Samantha Davis (Chairperson), Warwick Davis (President), Rebecca Nuttall (Administrator) and Penny Dean (Adoption Co-ordinator). LPUK shared information on what contributes to it's success as an organisation whilst also learning from other support groups about their best practices, and how we can apply them to improve LPUK even further.
It was a privilege to meet representatives from other dwarfism groups from around the world to discuss pertinent issues in the LP community, and how we can work together in the future to offer medical and social support, and make the world an even better place for people with dwarfism.
A huge thank you to Little People of America (LPA) for organising such a fantastic weekend, and of course Berlin for hosting it. We at LPUK look forward to working as a coalition to make improvements for the future of people with dwarfism.
