Service description:

Little People UK was co-founded in January 2012 by actor Warwick Davis, his wife Samantha, and a group of individuals with the same goal; to offer friendship and support to people with dwarfism, their families and friends, and help build a positive future for those individuals.

Since its inception, Little People UK has become an essential resource for the social, medical, and financial needs of the little people community. To date, it has attracted over 200 members, along with the support of highly-respected orthopaedic, ophthalmic, neurological, and anaesthetic consultant surgeons together with physiotherapists and educational practitioners, all of whom have a special interest in helping people with dwarfism.

Little People UK is lead by a voluntary committee of 12 (and one member of staff). It relies on fundraising and generous donations. The committee is made up of both people with dwarfism and average height individuals - making for a fair and compassionate group that can meet the needs of everyone. It ensures friendship and support is provided, whilst raising awareness of people with dwarfism and celebrating (with great pride and positivity) little people's contribution to society.

Little People UK is a registered charity (no. 1161274).
