We launched the 2020 GSK IMPACT Awards this week which provide funding and free leadership training for health and wellbeing charities. We are keen to make sure that as many organisations as possible are aware of this funding source and would really appreciate a mention in your next newsletter/ebulletin to members. Below is some text you may like to use:
2020 GSK IMPACT Awards – funding and free training for health charities
The GSK IMPACT Awards provide core funding, training and national recognition for charities doing excellent work to improve people’s health and wellbeing. Up to 20 awards will be made ranging from £3,000 to £40,000. To be eligible organisations must be at least three years old, a registered charity, working in a health-related field in the UK, with income between £80,000 and £2.5 million.
Winning organisations will have a film made, receive support with press and publicity and be given a set of promotional materials. They will also be offered free training and development valued at a further £9,500. In 2020 there will be three days of training leading up to the GSK IMPACT Awards ceremony in London. After this participants will be invited to join the GSK IMPACT Awards Network which connects past award winners both online and at meetings, to get and give support, share best practice and continue their professional development. Many participants have commented that the training, the new ideas and enthusiasm that they take away, and the connections they make is even more important than the award money.
