Charities are facing significant challenges as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic while continuing to provide vital services to keep people healthy and connected. This year, more than ever, we are pleased to announce that applications are now open for the 2022 GSK IMPACT Awards. This is also the 25th anniversary of the awards, and to mark this milestone we have increased our funding and launched the new GSK Grow Programme, which will support smaller charities.
The GSK IMPACT Awards provide core funding and free training for charities doing excellent work to improve people’s health and wellbeing. Organisations must be at least three years old, working in a health-related field in the UK, with income between £120,000 and £3 million. Up to 20 awards will be made, ranging from £4,000 to £50,000, plus free training and development 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 new GSK Grow Programme supports small charities with total annual income between £20,000 and £120,000. Up to 10 charities will receive £10,000 in unrestricted funding plus training and development valued at £3,200.
The GSK IMPACT Awards are funded by GSK and managed in partnership with The King’s Fund. They are judged by a prestigious panel of judges and provide national recognition for the winning organisations. They also give organisations access to a free leadership programme, designed specifically for health charities, provided by The King’s Fund. After taking part in the training, organisations can then join our network of health charities which supports ongoing service and organisational development.

Closing date: 20 September 2021 at 5pm
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 those 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.
