Small and medium charities in the UK can now apply to the GSK Impact Awards for 2025.

The GSK IMPACT Awards are an annual programme, funded by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) as part of the company’s commitment to promote community health and wellbeing. The awards have been running since 1997 and are organised and managed in partnership with The King’s Fund, a leading independent health charity working to improve health and social care.

This year, up to 10 winners will receive £40,000, with one overall winner receiving an extra £10,000. Additionally, up to five runners-up will receive £4,000.

Award winners will also be offered:

  • Training and development valued at an average of £13,500 per organisation.
  • Support with press and publicity.
  • A range of resources to help promote their work, such as short films and photography.
  • Pro bono offers from GSK including 12 months of legal support.

Eligible charities must:

  • Have existed for a minimum of three years by 30 August 2024.
  • Have a total annual income of between £150,000 and £3 million as shown in their most recent accounts.
  • Be independently constituted from any national umbrella organisation.
  • Target community health needs in the UK. Community can be defined as a geographical community or a community of interest.
  • Have a track record of achievement in community health issues.

The Awards recognise excellence in existing work and do not seek to fund new projects. Award winners can decide how they spend the money.

There is a two-stage application process.

The deadline for Stage One applications is 30 August 2024 (5pm).
