The Disability Resource Centre has recently received funding from Luton Council in partnership with NHS Luton Clinical Commissioning Group to provide a new carers service called Carers Central.

The main aim of the new service is to help carers in Luton to access support and advice by email, face to face, telephone & web.

This event will also be a good opportunity to network and gain a better understanding of services available to people within Luton.

Introducing our new support service for carers


Approximately 9% of the population of Luton have caring responsibilities – that is over 18,000 people of all ages caring for others of all ages.

Luton Council and Luton Clinical Commissioning Group recognise the crucial role that carers play in the lives of those they care for. Luton Council worked with carers, voluntary and statutory sector partners to refresh the strategic plan for carers in the town.

As a result, we have launched a new support service for unpaid Adult Carers in Luton, starting inApril 2019.

Read more about the service to carers here.
