The IMPACT Awards have been running since 1997 and are designed to recognise and reward charities that are doing excellent work to improve people’s health. They are funded by GlaxoSmithKline and managed in partnership with The King’s Fund.
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 £10,000 and £1.5 million.
An overall winner will receive £35,000, nine other winners will receive £25,000 and up to ten organisations that are highly commended or runners up will receive £5,000 or £3,000.
Organistaions do not need to present a new project. The awards are designed to recognise success and achievements for existing work.
Organisations that win or are highly commended for an IMPACT Award will be offered free training valued at £4,000.
Winners will be given a range of resources to help promote their work (such as professional photographs, films, banners and brochures).
Deadline for applications for the 2011 awards: Friday 24 September 2010, 5pm
