Primary Care

Little People UK delegates had a great time at the Primary Care Exhibition on 16th and 17th May 2018.

We met lots of medical professionals who can be a huge asset to LPUK, and we look forward to getting in touch with them to continue our work of supporting our members in the future. 

We also look forward to attending and exhibiting at next years show. 

DSA

The Dwarf Sports Association UK had another fantastic weekend for their 25th Anniversary National Games. There was lots of competition, medals and fun to be had, with the weather making it even more enjoyable. 

Little People UK had an information stand on the Friday of the event, where we had leaflets, news and our brilliant new magazines, for everyone to come and hear about LPUK.

Little People UK also heavily subsidise the convention to cover items such as: entertainment, AV equipment over the weekend, concession places (e.g. under 18 and over 60 LP’s). We do this by applying for grants and also our wonderful fundraisers contribute to this a great deal. 

We appreciate the Little People UK conventions cost a lot for our members to attend, below we have outlined a couple of ways in which you can be assisted with the convention cost.

1. LPUK Payment Scheme 

Little People UK wants to guarantee everyone who wants to attend the convention can, therefore we have agreed that payments can be paid to LPUK in instalments, to cover a maximum of a 6 month period. We will set out the payment schedule prior to the event, and you will be required to make the first payment prior to the event itself. 

2. Outside funding 

There are a wide variety of charities, organisations and local groups who can provide financial support for attending the LPUK conventions. We have offered some examples of these, along with a template letter on our website - Funding for attending LPUK events page We can offer support on amending the letter to suite you.

If you would like to take up these offers or discuss further, please contact the office confidentially at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 07925 893398.

Little People UK were contacted about this article and sent a statement (which unfortunately, was not used) to accompany this we also sent LPUK's 'Midget' Statement.

We are disappointed about this situation, and it has brought to light how much we need to help and educate society. 

The committee are always working hard, but realise there is much more work to do in this area.
