Become a Group B Strep Support Volunteer Ambassador

Group B Strep Support is committed to informing and supporting families affected by group B Strep, raising awareness among new and expectant parents and educating health professionals about group B Strep and how to prevent many more of these devastating infections.

Our Volunteer Ambassadors give their time, all around the country,and do a fantastic job in representing the charity within their local communities.

Just some of the things that a Group B Strep Support Volunteer Ambassador gets involved in include organising fundraising events, distributing awareness materials, having a dialogue with their local MP, sharing their story with the media, giving talks and presentations, supporting other fundraisers in their area and promoting awareness of group B Strep within the local hospitals, GP surgeries, schools, toddler and mother and baby groups. Not everyone does all of these, but most do most!

Here’s what one Volunteer Ambassador had to say:

Ame says, “I am delighted to represent the charity as a Volunteer Ambassador.  My daughter Lilee suffered group B Strep infection at birth and I do not want to see other families go through the trauma Lilee and I went through.  I am determined to raise as much awareness as possible of this horrid and devastating infection to stop it happening to other Mums and families.  It is preventable and knowing about it is good.”
