Little People UK have been approached to offer our members the opportunity of partaking in a piece of research. If you would like to participate, please see the link below.
This survey is being used to find out more information about pregnancy attitudes, outcomes and complications in women, who potentially pose as high risk patients. With the view of getting a better understanding of the specific challenges for future medical care.
Huge thank you to all our volunteers who help us during the events and throughout the year!
You are all a big part of what makes LPUK a success in supporting all of our members.
Last week Little People UK committee members had the pleasure of meeting with a representative from Over The Wall; a UK charity that provides residential summer camps children and their families coping with serious illnesses and conditions.
Each year Over The Wall run a number of residential camps throughout the UK; for children with health conditions, families of children with health conditions and siblings of children with health conditions. These camps involve a wide range of activities such as raft building, canoeing, music workshops, craft workshops, team activities and much more, with the main aim of each camp is having fun, in an environment where illness and condition are irrelevant.
Over The Wall have kindly offered Little People UK 2 free family spaces at the following camp - Midlands Family Camp - Saturday 5th May - Monday 7th May – Whitemoor Lakes, Lichfield, Staffordshire
Thank you in anticipation to Paul Bernard and anyone at Plymouth City Council who will be aiming raise funds for LPUK this Friday at their annual departmental Christmas events, by auctioning some excellent signed merchandise by LPUK President Warwick Davis.
We hope you all have a great time and thank you for your support.
Yesterday Little People UK committee members met with a Hate Crime Officer, based in the Cambridgeshire area, the aim of which was to prevent people with dwarfism feeling threatened/abused.
It was a great meeting where we were able to explain and discuss issues people with dwarfism face, for example; staring, non-permitted photographs being taken, abusive language being used, physical attacks, amongst other things.
