Financial awards that recognise and reward small to medium-sized charities in the UK that are doing excellent work to improve people’s health and wellbeing.
The GSK IMPACT Awards are an annual scheme, funded by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) as part of the company’s commitment to promoting community health and wellbeing. The Awards are organised and managed in partnership with the King’s Fund, a leading independent health charity working to improve health and social care.
The Awards recognise and reward small to medium-sized charities in the UK that are doing excellent work to improve people’s health. Charities must have an annual income of between £80,000 and £2.5 million.
Applicants must target community health needs in the UK and have a track record of achievement in this area.
The Awards recognise excellence in existing work and do not seek to fund new projects. The assessment is based on the work of the whole organisation and the assessment will focus on excellence in the six areas of IMPACT.
The judges will be looking for evidence of:
Up to ten winners will receive £30,000 unrestricted funding with one overall winner receiving £40,000. Winners will also receive free training and development valued at up to £9,500, a specially commissioned professional film and photographs along with publicity and press support. Up to ten runners-up will receive £3,000.
The deadline for applications is 23 September 2019 (5pm).
