“Like most people in this unprecedented time we want to help people”

“We are Care4Luton a team of young adults aged between 20 to 24, with a common passion to create change within our local community. The first time we met was in October 2019, through an organisation called UpRising.

You may be thinking to yourself what is UpRising?

Well… UpRising is a leadership organisation helping individuals from various backgrounds across the UK. They provide us opportunities to develop our skills and create the next generation of leaders. The main objective is to ensure leaders of the future are diverse, a true representation of our society!

Like most people in this unprecedented time we want to help people. Our social action campaign is simple, to create face masks for our community. Care4Luton members sew them from material, to help improve sustainability within Luton. But more importantly to tackle the growing concern of lack of PPE equipment- like masks during these difficult times.
