GSK Impact Award Winner 2018
Seaview are incredibly proud to announce that we are one of 8 national winners of a GSK/Kings Fund Impact Award 2018.
The awards are made to voluntary sector organisations who have had an exceptionally positive impact on the Health and Wellbeing of the communities they serve.
Lisa Weaks, Head of Third Sector at The Kings Fund, said:
The Seaview Project does hugely valuable work in supporting its local community and combating health inequalities. Crucially, its work focuseson empowering people through improving confidence and increasing access to services.
In particular, the judges were impressed by how the Seaview Project has a big reach despite being relatively small. It shows an organisation making the best use of its resources and making a real difference to peoples lives. It is a worthy winner of the award.
Annie Whelan, Chief Officer of the Seaview Project, said:
We are absolutely thrilled to be a GSK IMPACT award winner. It lets us know that what we have been doing to improve the health and mental health of a very excluded community in our little corner of the country has been recognised and has been measured as important.
The awards are well recognised and understood in the sector and beyond, and it is such a boost to receive one. It will also allow us to network and grow, learn from other winners and develop our practice and approach further. We are really looking forward to the opportunity to develop and profile our work on a wider platform.
