Overall winner of the GSK IMPACT Award

Groundswell Timeline / 2016

In May 2016 Groundswell were named ‘overall winner’ of the GSK IMPACT Award, a national award run in partnership with The King’s Fund that recognises excellence in charities improving health and well-being in their communities.

Groundswell was selected from more than 400 organisations to win the award. Key to Groundswell winning the award was the way we put people who are homeless at the heart of decision-making and our services.

Lisa Weaks, Third Sector Programme Manager at The King’s Fund, said:

‘Groundswell is a reflective, thoughtful organisation. By putting people touched by homelessness at the centre of its decision-making it fully understands the challenges and can respond sensitively and effectively. Its impact is tangible and hugely impressive, responding to the complex needs of homeless people with energy and innovation. We congratulate them on a well deserved win.’
