Coronavirus Update: We are here to help
Our hard-working team offers a telephone helpline on 0300 303 0201 open Monday to Friday in office hours and on Tuesdays we are open for telephone calls until 7pm. Or send us an email.
During the coronavirus crisis we can help you access reliable health and support information, and also put you in contact with NHS services to get medications delivered.
We are here with a listening ear too, offering emotional support to disabled people, people with long term health conditions, carers and families.
Coronavirus: Useful links for many health conditions
We’re compiling a list of links to charities for many of the health conditions listed in the NHS guide to social distancing. Many conditions are included like asthma, COPD, kidney, heart and liver conditions – plus many more. Take a look at our page for full details.
In an emergency we have some phone numbers and links that could help. Please visit our information page.
Practical Support for Carers
Welcome to the brand new Carers Central service where we are completely dedicated to helping unpaid carers living, or working, in Luton.
Our two Carer Support Workers, Lorraine and Levi, take the service out to different venues across Luton and also arrange visits to carers in their own homes and local venues to suit.
Please call us on 0300 303 0201 or send us an email.

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.
