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 between £120,000 and £3 million.

Up to 20 awards will be made, ranging from £4,000 to £50,000. In addition, the training and development is valued at a further £9,500. Organisations will also have a film made, receive help with press and publicity, and be given a set of promotional materials. The GSK IMPACT Awards are judged by a prestigious panel of judges and provide national recognition for the winning charities.

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. They want people to bring their unique blend of experiences, backgrounds, perspectives and knowledge to recognise that diversity makes us stronger.

Who can apply

Applicants must be:

  • A registered charity by the deadline for applications. The organisation must also have existed for a minimum of three years by this date.
  • Located and registered in the UK.
