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.
