Practical support for unpaid carers in Luton.

Welcome to Carers Central, where we are completely dedicated to helping unpaid carers living or working in Luton.

Carer support group meetings

Due to the coronavirus situation and government advice to stay at home all our Carers Central carers support groups are cancelled until further notice.

If you would like to participate in a virtual carers meeting using the online Zoom app then please contact Levi or Sally on 0300 303 0201.

We are still here to help and support you during this period of social isolation. 

If you know a carer in need or are one yourself, please do continue to contact us – we are here to help in any way we can.

We have a website especially created to help support carers in Luton please take a look and we hope you’ll find the information on this page to be useful.

We’ve been impressed with the help available on the CarersUK online forum. It’s a place to ask questions, with other carers providing the answers. There’s lots of useful tips and plenty of sympathetic support.
