New Active Luton Strategy “Creating Opportunities for Communities to Thrive”

Published on: March 30th 2023

Active Luton has launched its new five-year strategy for 2023-28 and is aiming to support Luton to become the first ‘Marmot’ town.

Entitled ‘Creating Opportunities for Communities to Thrive’, the strategy outlines Active Luton’s role as a community wellbeing trust alongside the many other voluntary, community, faith and social enterprises (VCFSEs) across Luton working together to shine a spotlight on and to redress the health inequalities in the town after Covid.

This new strategy aims to bring to life Active Luton’s mission to make a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of its community and aligns with Luton Council’s – Luton 2040 vision ‘A Place to Thrive’.  

The strategy also aims to support Luton as the first ‘Marmot’ town, named after the world-leading health inequalities expert, Professor Sir Michael Marmot.  A Marmot town is one that has a significant commitment to and effective plans and policies in place to tackle health inequalities.

The strategic priorities for the coming five years focus on supporting children in Luton to get the best start in life, supporting the wellbeing of the community, developing skills and lifelong learning, developing further as a great place to work, strengthening financial viability and sustainability and conducting Active Luton’s business in an environmentally sustainable manner.
