  • Mission statement

    The Restricted Growth Association (RGA) is a UK based charity that provides vital support to improve the quality of life for persons of restricted growth (dwarfism), and their families. We also supply information and advice to a wide range of medical professionals who treat patients with restricted growth. Our goal is to reduce the disadvantages of people of restricted growth by providing advice, support, representation and information resources. We provide friendship, mutual support and encouragement for individuals of short stature and their families. We also work to ensure that the diversity of the short stature community is promoted and celebrated. We hope to raise public awareness of restricted growth in order to reduce social barriers and promote equality. The Association represents people of restricted growth and acts as an advocate on behalf of those with short stature, their partners, families and carers.
