Welcome to our update of news & events


Mindful art support group

We have a new 'mindful' art support group that meets Monday mornings. You can enjoy a couple of hours of mindful art, learn new techniques, find new ways to relax and share your skills.

Carers Eating Disorder Association (CEDA)

If you care for someone with an eating disorder, this support group could help you. The support group holds a monthly meet-up to share experiences, offer help and provide lots of sympathetic support. Please see the CEDA support group on Facebook.

Benefits form-filling workshops on Mondays

We have helped people claim over £1,000,000 in benefits in 2016/17. 

The benefits form-filling workshops are designed to help you negotiate your way through the rather in-depth and sometimes confusing benefits claim forms.

Expert help with seating on Thursdays

Every Thursday we offer expert help with choosing the best chair. Our seating specialist is here to advise on getting the correct chair size, support to help maintain the correct posture and pressure care to prevent skin or muscle irritation.

Carers support group

Our carers support group meets twice every month helping carers in Luton to share their experiences and get help from our two Carer Support Officers, Yakini and Fiona.

Physical Health and Emotional Wellbeing (PHEW) support group

Get support from people with real life experience of managing their own health, and/or caring for our loved ones who have health conditions.

Fibromyalgia support group

Come along to the Fibromyalgia support group meetings on the first Tuesday of every month. Check the support group's popular Facebook page for updates and useful information.
