Pursuing a healthy lifestyle in Luton doesn't need to be expensive. #HealthyLuton is a campaign designed by Luton Borough Council, Team Beds & Luton and Active Luton, bringing together all the free, low cost and subsidised opportunities there are to lead a healthy lifestyle in Luton.
This page is regularly updated by partners to include the most up to date opportunities in Luton.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic there has been a significant reduction in engagement in sport and physical activity locally with national lockdowns limiting opportunities for residents to be active. The campaign #LutonLetsGetActive under the umbrella of Healthy aims to support the return of sport and physical activity, encouraging and motivating Luton residents to be active, addressing the barriers to getting active and offering reassurance that sport and physical activity can be undertaken safely. The #LutonLetsGetActive campaign will promote existing opportunities to be active across Luton and build on habits developed during the national lockdowns such as, walking, jogging or cycling.
The campaign will also complement the Luton 2040 vision by helping to reduce health inequalities and improving the quality of lives of Luton residents.
As part of the #LutonLetsGetActive Campaign, we have created a database of some existing activities and sessions which are already happening across Luton.
