We are committed to being an organisation which is at the heart of the community and where all are valued and respected.

Our vision is to ensure residents of Luton and in particular those from the Biscot Beech Hill, Dallow & Saints Wards,  have access to the services and support they need, at the level they need and which is timely. We are committed to working in partnership with others to ensure the best use of resources for the benefit of the community we serve.
