Warwick Davis - President

warwickdavisI helped to co-found Little People UK in 2011 and am honoured to have been asked to be their Patron. I am very involved with the day to day running of the charity along with my wife Sammy who is another co-founder and the current Chairperson. We have two children, Annabelle and Harrison who both have SED. 

As a family, we face and overcome challenges daily, and we will continue to use this experience to educate and help others.

LPUK has come a long way since its inception 5 years ago and still has big ideas and great ambition for the future. Our ultimate goal is always to help people with dwarfism, their families and friends.

Simeon Dyer - Acting Chairperson

THA 1048 original

Hello my name is Simeon Dyer and I was born with Achondroplasia. I'm a 22 years old and I have just completed my study of Performing Arts at University. Like most other dwarfs I am the only dwarf in my family.

I joined LPUK 5 years ago and before that I hadn't really met any other dwarfs. The charity has helped me in so many different ways from finding out more about my condition to making life long friends. 

The reason I wanted to join the charity's committee was to give something back to the charity after it has given me so much.

Hi my name is Emma, I am a Little Person with Achondroplasia. I am the only person with dwarfism in my family. I am 26 years old and currently work in retail. I also have a real passion for dressmaking and sewing with the dream one day of making and designing clothes for Little People. 

I have been a member of DSAuk since I was 5 years old. When LPUK was formed by Sam I jumped at the chance to attend and be apart of it and I have never looked back since.

I am really pleased to be part of the LPUK Committee and look forward to all the great things we have planned for the future.

Jess Hornsey

Jess HornseyHello, my name is Jess I am 29 years old, I live in the East Riding of Yorkshire, and I am a little person. The form of dwarfism I have is hypochondroplasia. I work as a teaching assistant, with primary aged children. As like a lot of other people who have dwarfism, I am the only member of my family who is a little person. Before joining LPUK around 4 years ago I had never really met other people like myself. However, since joining LPUK I have never looked back and it’s the best decision I ever made not just for myself but for my husband and daughter who are both average height. I enjoy raising awareness of dwarfism in the community and I have raised money in raffles over the last few years to raise funds for LPUK.
