GSK, one of the world’s leading research-based pharmaceutical and healthcare companies, has launched a new Community Investment Fund initiative in Dungarvan, County Waterford, which aims to promote health and well-being in the local community.
The purpose of the initiative is to help people do more, feel better and live longer.
GSK employs 1,700 people across four locations in Ireland - Cork, Dublin, Sligo and Waterford – and the Community Investment Fund is open to applications from organisations who are working in the communities surrounding the GSK site at Dungarvan.

A strict judging process will follow and the successful applicants will be announced in November. “At GSK, we believe our mission to help people do more, feel better and live longer starts at home.
