The Connect Hackney programme evaluation is led by City University. It is based in  feedback from a range of people, including participants, project staff, and partner organisations. Research findings are based on interviews and a participant survey. The evaluation is also contributing to the national evaluation of the Ageing Better programme.

The programme has created a list of recommendations based on the evaluation findings which are available here:  Connect Hackney Recommendations Jan 2022
