Whilst the UK is in 'lockdown' and schools closed for the majority of students, along with other members of the population practising social distancing, we have been promoting a number of different ways to help pass the time and also help with homeschooling:
We will continue to post different lockdown activities, throughout this period, to keep up to date with them, visit our website, where they will be posted on a regular basis.
If at any point during this time you need to seek guidance regarding your mental health, please don't hesitate to contact Mind, the UK charity which supports all mental health needs.
Following the current rise of COVID-19 cases, the Little People UK (LPUK) Committee have released the following statement regarding our activities in the coming months:
In light of recent Government and World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines, Little People UK committee, staff and volunteers will not be attending any external events for the remainder of March and the whole of April, at least. This includes fundraising events, awareness events, school visits, community meetings and all other planned activities.
The LPUK Committee will reassess the situation in the coming months and will likely extended this further until June.
This decision has not been taken lightly and we are sorry to disappoint anyone who was expecting our attendance, however we feel it is important to follow the guidelines set out to us, to ensure we protect everyone within the community.
We thank you for your kind support and we will continue to attend events once recommended to do so. All information of rescheduled and future events will be available on our website.
All the best,
My Daughter is currently in her final year at Demontford University in Leicester studying Fashion design.
She is restricted in growth and is creating a brand and clothing line for people with restricted growth as she knows the challenges they face.
For her final Year 3 project she will require models to show the line first in Leicester then in London for London Fashion week.

On the weekend of 22nd February 2020, LPUK held our 8th Birthday Celebration. We were delighted to welcome some old faces, along with lots of new members, to a evening of food, bingo and disco.
Many of our members turned up sometime during the day with many going to Milton Keynes Xscape, to have some fun time of their own, others stopped in the hotel with the chance to socialise and catch up with others. The buffet was served from 6pm, followed by the regular LPUK bingo, and raffle. We then had a great disco which continued until 1am and was enjoyed by many of our younger members. All in all the weekend was great fun and enjoyed by many.
We look forward to seeing everyone at next event.
Details of all LPUK events can be found via our Calendar of Events.
A huge thankyou to everyone who came, we love to hear feedback of your weekend, to help us improve for future events. You can complete our survey to give your input. This can be found here.
