Carers’ stories

We’ve found some excellent case studies on the Carers UK website telling the stories of carers and how they have been using some new technology.

Read how these technologies are helping; such as an automated pill dispenser, a bedtime monitor, personal alarms and more.

Who We Are

Carers Central is a completely free and dedicated service available to unpaid carers living or caring for someone in Luton.

Our two Carer Support Workers take our service out to different venues across Luton and provide home visits when necessary.

We give Carers advice, information and help that is derived from our knowledge and experience of working with all the existing local services, Luton GP practices, the Carers Partnership Board in Luton and our additional partners.

Thanks to funding by Luton Council we are able to provide information and practical support to a great number of Carers in Luton.


In an emergency we have some phone numbers and links that could help. Please visit our information page.


For practical support for carers please call us on 0300 303 0201 or send us an email.
