Eight charities from across the UK have won a 2018 GSK IMPACT Award for improving health and wellbeing in their communities. 

This year £268,000 in prize money was available via the awards. The eight charity winners will each receive £30,000 and runners up will receive £3,000. An overall winner will be awarded an additional £10,000 at the award ceremony at The Science Museum in London on 17 May 2018.

The GSK IMPACT Awards are running in partnership with The King’s Fund. Applications opened in July 2017 and more than 350 organisations entered.

The assessment process included being judged on innovation, management, partnership, achievement, community focus, and targeting need. 

In addition to the financial awards, winning charities are given access to free training and leadership development. They are also invited to join the GSK IMPACT Awards Network, a national network of almost 80 award-winning health and wellbeing charities that connects previous winners and supports them to further develop their leaders. 

Lisa Weaks, Head of Third Sector at The King’s Fund, said: “We hope that winning this award will help further extend the reach and impact of these charities. As well as the financial support the award brings, the leadership support should mean they are even better placed to improve the health and wellbeing of the people they serve.”
