Core Funding and Training for Charities Doing Excellent Work to Improve People’s Health and Wellbeing

Is your organisation:

• an established organisation which is a registered charity with a track record in community health issues

• which is targeting community health needs (community can be defined as a geographical community or a community of interest)

• which has a total annual income between £80,000 and £2.5m

• which is independently constituted from any national umbrella organisation?

If so, read on!

The GSK IMPACT Awards provide core funding, training and national recognition for charities doing excellent work to improve people's health and well being. Up to 20 awards will be made ranging from £3,000 to £40,000.

Winning organisations will have a film made, receive support with press and publicity and be given a set of promotional materials. They will also be offered free training and development valued at a further £9,500. Many participants have commented that the training, the new ideas and enthusiasm that they take away, and the connections they make is even more important than the award money.

Assessment is based on the work of the whole organisation and the assessment which will focus on excellence in the six areas of IMPACT:

  • Innovation
  • Management
  • Partnership
  • Achievement
  • Community Focus
  • Targeting Need

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 23 September 2019.
