In addition to funding, prize winners will receive training and development opportunities 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.

Applicants must be registered charities with a proven track record of targeting community health needs in the UK. Community can be defined as a geographical community or a community of interest.

The GSK IMPACT Awards recognise excellence in existing work.

    • efficient use of resources;
    • quality of management processes;
    • diversity and inclusion;
    • clear objectives and plans;
    • financial effectiveness of the organisation.
  • Partnership
    • working effectively with others (the community, voluntary, private and public sector partners etc);
    • willingness to share ‘best practice’ and to learn from others.
  • Achievement
    • Scale and impact of work relative to the size of the organisation;
    • impact on access to healthcare;
    • a reflective approach to evaluation;
    • measurement and monitoring of performance;
    • being able to report on outcomes and impact.
  • Community Focus
