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.

LPUK recommends that anyone loaning equipment from the LPUK Equipment Loan Scheme takes out Personal Liability Insurance in relation to the equipment. Below are some ideas of insurance companies which may be useful.
