GSK’s IMPACT Awards reward charities that are doing excellent work to improve people’s health. Organisations must be at least three years old, working in a health-related field in the UK, with income between £80,000 and £2.5 million.
Funding is available to community groups and organisations who deliver activities which improve the lives of people living on Bransholme, with grants of up to £500 available.
The fund aims to support activities that will encourage people to become involved in their local communities, have a better quality of life, enable people of all ages to develop new skills and encourage people to become more active.
World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) is celebrated every year from 1 to 7 August to encourage breastfeeding and improve the health of babies around the world.
This year, the World Health Organisation is demanding mums be offered immediate breastfeeding support within the first of hour of birth.
