The benefits of winning a GSK IMPACT Award

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


  • Up to ten winners receive £30,000 plus the overall winner receives an extra £10,000.
  • Up to ten runners-up receive £3,000.
  • 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.

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.

The GSK IMPACT Award winners are presented with their awards at a ceremony in central London. With up to 400 guests in attendance, the event provides an excellent opportunity to showcase work and raise profile.

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.
