This July 2022 report investigates the design, delivery, and impacts of Entelechy Arts’ remote
creative programme, ‘Staying Connected’, from the perspectives of service providers and users
during, and as the country transitioned out of, the restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic.

Staying Connected included provision for members (service users) of Meet Me… a long-standing
social and creative programme run for older adults in partnership with The Albany in Lewisham. The
study conducted qualitative focus groups and a longitudinal quantitative study with older adults to
understand how they engaged with the programme and to assess whether programme participation
was related to psychological wellbeing over a 6-month period.

In its 40 pages it summarises key findings as well as more detailed findings and a series of
recommendations and a related literature review. This report stems from an 18-month UK Research
and Innovation – Arts and Humanities Research Council (UKRI-AHRC) funded research project
conducted in collaboration between Entelechy Arts and Queen Mary University London (QMUL).
