'Small Steps to Great Things’ A Monthly LPUK News Update

October was a fantastic month of raising awareness during Dwarfism Awareness Month, delegates attended the Celebrating Us - Hate Crime event in Cambridgeshire, which we found very informative, speaking to the Police Crime Commissioner for Cambridge, Chief Constable of Cambridge and the High Sheriff of Cambridge, amongst many other people and made them aware of ‘issues’ our members face. They were enlightened and intrigued to hear our stories and vowed to help us. Delegates also attended the Cambridgeshire Disability Partnership Board, where we discuss issues in and around the area to improve access and services for all disabled people, including people with dwarfism. We will soon have information which we can release to members throughout the UK about their local Healthwatch and how they can get involved to improve services in their area. We also attended the Peterborough Feel The Force Day, where we met lots of people, and made some great new contacts who could help us support our members. 

Newsletter 1

LPUK participated in Dwarfism Awareness Month by posting daily updates on our social media channels, sending leaflets and information to various companies and organisations to display in their reception area, bringing dwarfism awareness to the greater public. We also held a few dwarfism awareness presentations, inducing attending two schools on 25th October, International Dwarfism Awareness Day.
