GSK IMPACT Awards
The GSK IMPACT Awards, run in partnership with The King’s Fund, are designed to recognise the outstanding work of community-based health and wellbeing charities. The awards are open to charities with an annual income of between £25,000 and £2million that are at least three years old.
The name ‘IMPACT’ derives from the criteria that winners must have demonstrated in their application submissions: Innovation, Management, Partnership, Achievement, Community Focus and Targeting Need.
The 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 £25,000 and £2 million.
GSK IMPACT Awards Judging Criteria
Working in partnership with The King’s Fund, a leading independent health charity, the GSK IMPACT awards recognise and promote the work of voluntary organisations with a proven track record in the challenging and demanding area of community healthcare. Awards are made on an annual basis, applications are made directly to The King’s Fund and in contrast to all other areas of the company’s programme of charitable support, awards can be used for core funding.
Organisations applying for funding via the GSK IMPACT Awards will be measured using the following criteria:
Innovation - Leadership, creativity and initiative in addressing current challenges in healthcare access and delivery.
Management – Efficient use of resources; quality of management processes; clear objectives and plans; measurement and monitoring of performance; strength and financial effectiveness of the organisation.
Partnership – Working effectively with others (members, users, private and public sector partners, etc); willingness to share ‘best practice’ and to learn from others.
Achievement – Measurable results achieved; numbers of people benefited, impact on access to healthcare; difference made.
Community Focus – Involving and responding to users and the community; openness and provision of information; adaptability to changing circumstances and needs.
Targeting need – Awareness of community issues and priorities; focus on people in need.
Applications are now closed for the 2016 GSK IMPACT Awards.
