Never forget that you matter; that you have every right to walk your streets, playgrounds, and public spaces with your head high; that you have every right to speak, to be heard, to be valued; that you have every right to be who you are and what you are. And no-one can take that away.

Happy Friday to all our members #Dwarfism. #TeamRGA

“You’re attention-seeking!”, “these characters are fictitious!”, “they’ve existed for years!” RGA UK VC Eugene addresses some of the criticisms levelled at the charity after it supported parents speaking out about Lego's 'Evil Dwarf' figure and playing card, and explains there are deeper power politics underlying these accusations.

BBC Documentary – we want to hear from you!

Do you have something to say about how people of restricted growth are represented?

In cinemas and theatres…

In books and TV shows..

In cartoons and pantomimes…

In paintings and photographs?

And do you have thoughts on how you'd like the restricted growth community to be portrayed?

A new BBC documentary will be exploring how people of restricted growth are seen in arts and culture, looking at the significant contribution of people of short stature to art and beyond.

We'd like to know:

What are the most positive aspects of the dwarfism community today?

Are there misconceptions that need to be dispelled?

And is the portrayal of people with restricted growth moving in the right direction?

If you would like to take part in a filmed discussion as part of the programme, What Larks Productions would love to hear from you.

The discussion is planned for Central London on 12 August, but if you can’t make that date, there’s a chance your contribution could still be included in the programme.

Please contact Gabie Meade at gabriella@whatlarks.tv and she will get right back to you.

Happy hump day everyone!

Did you get stuck in traffic this morning?
Maybe your alarm didn't go off?

Don't see this as a negative, just that you weren't meant to be on the road at that moment.
A positive thought is a powerful one.

A little awareness goes a long way.
So if your child is starting a new school or nursery why not ask our office to send out some of our information packs.

They are full of useful information for teachers and other parents, and the fluffy bugs and stickers are always good for the kids!
Email office@restrictedgrowth.co.uk to get your ready for September!
