Caring for carers

Without help and support, carers can find themselves struggling with what can be very physical and emotional demands, trying to balance work and home life, and potentially risking their own health and wellbeing as a result.

Supporting carers to enable them to meet their own needs is a key focus for both Luton CCG and our partners at Luton Borough Council and we continue to actively support them.We value the work of our carers, who are quite literally, indispensable.

Carers strategy 

With support from a range of local organisations (including SEPT – South Essex Partnership Trust – Mental Health Trust) we have set out the types of services needed by carers and how they will be provided in the future.

The overall aim of the strategy found below is to ensure that carers are recognised and valued as being fundamental to strong families and stable communities and have opportunities to live healthy, fulfilling and enjoyable lives.
