Population Wellbeing is a new department, created as part of the management restructure. It's made up of the following services:
Adult Social Care
The Care Act 2014 placed safeguarding adults boards on a primary legislative statutory footing with new duties on all agencies.
The main function of the Board is to ensure all adults in Luton who may be at risk of abuse are safeguarded and that agencies work together to make this happen.
We want people in Luton to live longer and healthier lives.
Together with NHS Luton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) we want to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Luton.
To achieve this we are working together with the Luton CCG on a programme called ‘Better Together’. Our broad plan is to:
- invest more in helping people to keep healthy through having a good diet, taking regular exercise and being smoke free – with the aim of helping to reduce cases of conditions such as obesity and certain types of diabetes, amongst others
- help people to manage their conditions, putting them in control of their health
- move healthcare, which can be provided at home or in the community, out of hospitals to enable people to benefit from a more coordinated approach between health and care services and supporting them to be able to manage their conditions at home or in the community
Business intelligence is a data analysis process aimed at boosting business performance by helping corporate executives and other end users make more informed decisions.
Housing Services manages repairs and maintains council properties, plus properties we use as temporary accommodation.
- build new properties, sometimes in partnership with housing associations
- deliver the housing strategy
- maintain the housing register
- prevent and assess homeless households
