2023 GSK IMPACT Awards are now open for applications
The GSK IMPACT Awards provide funding, training and development for charities doing excellent work to improve people’s health and wellbeing. The awards are funded by GSK and managed in partnership with The King’s Fund. They 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 £120,000 and £3 million.
- Up to ten winners receive £40,000, in unrestricted funding with the overall winner receiving an additional £10,000.
- Up to five runners-up receive £4,000 in unrestricted funding.
- Award winners are offered free training and development valued at an average of £9,500 for each organisation.
- You do not need to present a new project, and you decide how to spend the award money.
GSK and The King’s Fund actively encourage organisations to apply who are led by and support people from underrepresented backgrounds, people from ethnic minority communities, those with disabilities and from the LGBTQ+ community. We want people to bring their unique blend of experiences, backgrounds, perspectives and knowledge as we recognise that diversity makes us stronger.
This year the GSK IMPACT Awards have moved to a two-stage application process.
Deadline for Stage 1 applications is 5pm on Thursday, 1st September 2022.
Full guidelines can be found here: Funding Guidelines.
Free training and development
Award winners are offered two free places on the GSK IMPACT Awards Development Programme. They are also invited to join the GSK IMPACT Awards Network, which connects past GSK IMPACT Award winners, both online and at meetings, allowing them to get and give support, share best practice and continue their professional development.
Publicity, films and national recognition
The awards provide organisations with an important quality mark. Winning organisations are visited by a photographer, have a professional film made about their work and receive support with press and publicity.
GSK IMPACT Award winners are presented with their awards at a ceremony in central London, the event provides an excellent opportunity to showcase work and raise profile.
