The LPUK Youth Team have arranged a meet up at the Nottingham Christmas Market on Saturday 1st December at 11:30am.
 
They will meet at the left lion, opposite the Council Houses at 11:30am, waiting until 11:45am before leaving to visit the market and go for food afterwards. (If you are running late on the day, you can contact LPUK on 07925893398 and we can let you know where people are.)
 
For members to go alone they must be 16 years and above, younger members can attend, but must be accompanied by an adult.
 
LPUK are not making any bookings and will not take responsibility for anyone's actions. Attendees must make their own travel arrangements, pay for own food and activities undertaken (should you want to on the day). No alcohol will be consumed by any LPUK representatives (i.e. Youth Team members) on the day.
 
Please let us know if you want to come along. 
 
We'd love to see you before Christmas for a festive get together!
 
 
Nottingham Christmas meet up
 

I am a 15 year old GCSE Product Design student at Malmesbury Secondary School. As part of my project I am designing something to help people complete tasks around the house with dwarfism, especially achondroplasia. I am interested in designing something for people with dwarfism because I do not believe there are many products on the market that meet their needs. In order to generate suitable concepts, I need to carry out research on my clientele. I have a few questions that would greatly help me complete my research and design something that would help people with dwarfism.

Little People UK have developed a video to raise awareness of the attention people with dwarfism, and disablities face in everyday situtations. 

People with disabilities, in particular those with dwarfism, encounter looks and stares from people, it's human nature. Children in particular find little people fascinating, often reacting quite vocally. Out of embarrassment, parents try to defuse the situation, but this isn't always in a positive way, which then makes children 'scared' of people who are different. When they only wanted to be treat like everyone else.

Little People UK would like to raise awareness and help people initiate a conversation instead of just staring.

In July, Little People UK delegates attended the 61st Little People of America National Conference, in Orlando, learning lots and making some great new connections to help develop LPUK in the future and continue to fully support our members. 

The LPA National Conference schedule was filled with lots of workshops and activities, all designed to provide delegates with medical knowledge, social support, equipment information and chance to meet others from around the world.
