Abstract Meaningful, creative, and innovative forms of engagement with older people and people as they age is fundamental in designing research on later life and healthy ageing. One project in the Social Behavioural and Design Research programme (researching scalable and sustainable design improvements to homes that provide support for healthy cognitive ageing), will discuss how they meaningfully engage with older people throughout the life of the project, including the co-design of research, future collaborations, and general engagement, as well as governance. Projects will highlight the challenges facing them in developing this approach during the Covid 19 pandemic (and mitigations put in place), including how they will engage with people from disadvantaged, disabled and diverse backgrounds, and those who were digitally excluded.
