Corporate support

our partners

We are grateful to organisations, past and present, that have partnered with us to support our work and hugely value these partners. These partnerships enable organisations to achieve their corporate social responsibility objectives, and to contribute to real change for families, locally and nationally.

 

Below are some of the ways companies can help support us.  If your organisation is looking for a long-term relationship or employee engagement through fundraising and events, we can find an opportunity to meet your needs.

Charity of the Year

Does your company have a Charity of the Year scheme that you could nominate Group B Strep Support for? If you have a member of staff who has had a baby affected by group B Strep, this can be a lovely way to show your support but please speak to them first to check they are happy with your plans.

Payroll Giving

This is the simplest way for your employees to give a regular donation in support of our work. Payroll giving is easy and tax-efficient, costing you less whilst giving us more! Gifts are taken directly out of earnings before tax is deducted therefore every pound donated comes to us in full.

Company Donations

Your organisation could make a financial donation to Group B Strep Support to fund the services we offer:-

  • Raising awareness among pregnant women and new parents through campaigns, leaflets and online, so they are informed about group B Strep and able to make informed decisions about what is best for them and their babies.
  • Educating and informing midwives and doctors about identifying and treating group B Strep in pregnant women and babies through training and information materials.
  • Working with decision makers to improve current prevention and treatment strategies to protect more babies.

Employee Fundraising

We know that staff fundraising opportunities are key to many charity partnerships. We have a selection of events in which employees can join in as a team or individual. See our events section  for upcoming activities. You can also encourage employees to create their own fundraising activity to raise money for us. Our team will provide support and advice for fundraising ideas you have.

Gift in Kind

Corporate support does not have to be financial. You can give invaluable assistance by donating your time, products and services, therefore allowing us to free up some of our resources. Gifts can also make great prizes for fundraising activities and give your organisation the opportunity to highlight your products and your skills.
