This year Duckie will undertake an Arts Council Funded Research Project in partnership with Queen Mary University of London to measure the impact of The Posh Club on older peoples’ health, engagement and wellbeing. We are running the programme in association with local Doctors surgeries in Hackney and Crawley. The findings will will be disseminated among stakeholders who are engaged with issues of ageing and how to age well.
