Financial assistance

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 have recently received messages from members of the dwarfism community regarding comments made as part of a stand up show 'Terribly Funny’. This comment being - “Is a dwarf an abortion that made it?” 

We are saddened that in 2019 we have to deal with such prejudice to the dwarfism community (and other minority groups) in a time where we all strive to live equal lives and celebrate diversity without fear of humiliation or preconception. 

Comments such as this are offensive to people with dwarfism and are incredibly detrimental to their wellbeing. People with dwarfism simply want to live their lives just like everyone else; going to school, shopping, walking down the street and going to work, sometimes in highly respected professions. To potentially hear a member of the public repeat such a comment, after seeing a stand up show, can affect them for their entire life. This causes unnecessary distress and anxiety through no fault of the person with dwarfism, simply because they have a genetic difference. 

Additionally, we consider the parents of people with dwarfism (with 80% of people with dwarfism born to average height parents as the result of a spontaneous genetic mutation). Anyone can have a child with dwarfism. For parents, particularly new parents, to hear such ‘jokes’ about their child can have long lasting effects. 

We strongly urge reconsideration of using people with dwarfism as the subject of jokes. We appreciate comedy is a matter of personal opinion, however in 2019, people with dwarfism should not have to live with the consequences of being the subject of someone else's humour.

Can’t wait to wear this vest! 

I have signed up to the Lakeland 50 (50 mile trail run) in July to raise awareness and hopefully some funds for Little People UK. To help support them as they have our family.
