I am very proud and excited to share our website with you.
It has been many months in development and I think it signals how LPUK has matured as a charity. The site aims to be an invaluable resource to the dwarfism community, their friends and families. Membership can be completed via this website and in time event registration will be available through the site too.

It was my wedding day! A wonderful sunny day marrying the man of my dreams our four children in attendance. Who could ask for more. The beautiful old farm where we exchanged vows nestled in the Derbyshire hills, a newborn lamb struggling to its feet born before our eyes. As new life entered the world my unborn child sadly left and as we returned from our wedding I was rushed into hospital for emergency surgery an ectopic pregnancy.
