Welcome

Welcome to the Walking With Giants Foundation

We are a voluntary non-profit making registered charity (Reg No 1123246), set up to support and enrich the lives of individuals and families from the UK and around the world who are affected by the following Primordial Dwarfism subtypes:

  • PD Non Specific

We provide support and encouragement to these individuals and their families in any way which is charitable in accordance with the law in England and Wales.
