Dear members,
 
We hope you are all doing well during this difficult and ever changing time, please don’t forget LPUK are here if you need us, we have some information on our website about COVID support, and we have our monthly online sessions, which we will outline at the bottom of this message, you can also contact us at any time should you need to.
 
Due to the current and often changing COVID19 restrictions, the LPUK Committee have now taken the difficult decision to cancel all face-to-face meetings for the foreseeable future. This includes our event in February. This was a very difficult decision to make, however after lots of discussion we felt it was the best course of action to ensure all our members are kept safe and well. We will keep everyone updated of future discussions and we look forward to starting to be able to plan an event soon. As allowed by the Charity Commission the AGM has been postponed until the earliest opportunity, with the Committee currently remaining as it is. However, if anyone feels the need for an AGM sooner or for a change in the LPUK Committee, please do get in touch by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
 
During this period the LPUK Committee are taking the opportunity to undertake lots of foundation work, such as policy making, looking for funding opportunities and planning for the future, whilst also running the online sessions. We endeavour to continue this throughout the next few months and look forward to when we can meet-up once again, to have a celebration of the dwarfism community.
 
Although we can not hold face-to-face events we have a program of online monthly events, which all our members are welcome to attend, these include:
  • LPUK Book Club (often first Sunday of every month at 4pm)
  • LPUK Film Club (often second Friday of every month at 6pm)
  • LPUK Glad Rags and Gossip (often the third Wednesday of every month at 6pm)
  • LPUK Virtual Quiz (often last Wednesday of every month at 6pm)
Do visit our website to put the dates in your diary - https://littlepeopleuk.org/events/calendar-of-events. We are discussing ideas for other monthly online sessions and we will keep everyone updated with these. If you have any ideas for online sessions, please do let us know.
 
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time, and please do contact us if you need to.
 
Thank you,
Little People UK Committee.
We know it's difficult to get clothing for people with dwarfism, but here's your chance to help out!
 
Chamiah Dewey is a student at London College of Fashion, we met recently via Zoom, and she has shown us how dedicated and passionate she is to designing and producing clothing for people with dwarfism, starting for now with women but with the idea to developing this for all, her aim is to do this by summer 2021.
 
The aim is for this clothing range to be accessible without alterations and that is where you come in, Chamiah needs to gather some information from the dwarfism community and so has asked us to share the following survey where you can submit your thoughts, opinions and experiences.
 
Click the link to fill out the survey - https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/6PW6X37 
 
We know how difficult it can be to obtain clothing and would like to make this easier for all, from what we have seen, Chamiah's vision is the best yet for making this a reality.
 
Thank you!
