The GSK IMPACT Awards provide funding, training and development for registered charities working to make a positive difference to community health in the UK. Funded by British pharmaceutical company GSK and managed in partnership with The King’s Fund, the awards are open to registered charities that are at least three years old, working in a health-related field in the UK, with a total annual income of between £80,000 and £2.5 million.
The overall winner will receive 40,000 and up to 10 winners will receive £30,000, up to 10 runners-up will also receive £3,000. As part of the award, the winning charities are given the opportunity to take part in a training and development programme and join the Network of GSK IMPACT Award winners. This is valued at £8,000.
Research bodies, advice agencies and groups focusing on broader social welfare work are not eligible. The assessment is based on the achievements of the whole organisation which must be focused on community health.
The deadline for applications is 5pm, 20th September 2018.
