Making Luton a Marmot Town


Reducing health inequalities in Luton : A Marmot Town banner

Luton is the first town to become a ‘Marmot Town’ and joins a growing number of ‘Marmot Places’, which include cities and regions, that are working with UCL Institute of Health Equity to reduce health inequalities.

A Marmot place is one which has a significant commitment to tackle health inequalities through action on the social determinants of health - the social and economic conditions which shape our health - and has strong and effective plans and policies to achieve these reductions in health inequalities. 

This report sets out plans to reduce inequality, improve health for everyone in Luton so that all residents can look forward to a long, healthy and happy life and it aligns well with the vision set out in our Luton 2040 plan.
