How to apply for a GSK IMPACT Award

The 2024 GSK IMPACT Awards 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 £150,000 and £3 million. 

The 2025 GSK IMPACT Awards will open for applications on 1 July 2024.  If you would like to receive details, please complete the enquiries form at the bottom of this page. 

GSK and The King’s Fund actively encourage organisations to apply that are led by and support people from under-represented backgrounds, people from ethnic minority communities, people with disabilities and people 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.

Benefits of winning

GSK IMPACT Award winners receive a whole host of benefits including funding, training and development, publicity and national recognition.

Funding

  • 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.

  • Winners will be asked to complete a brief report (less than one page) outlining how they have used their donation.

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.

‘Winning a GSK IMPACT Award really raised our profile and gave us a sense of confidence and greater self-belief that our work has been acknowledged and made us feel that what we were doing was right.’
