Group B Strep Support was set up in 1996 after Jane and Robert Plumb’s middle child, Theo, died from group B Strep infection.
“Following our middle child’s group B Strep infection in 1996, Robert and I found few answers to the questions we had. Luckily, we very quickly made contact with an expert in the field and, after he explained how preventable most group B Strep infection in newborn babies is – and how so few health professionals at the time were aware of good prevention measures – we decided to set up a charity.”Jane Plumb MBE, Founder and CE of Group B Strep Support
Group B Strep Support (also known as GBSS) is a UK registered charity dedicated to stopping group B Strep infections, including meningitis, in babies. Our goal is the eradication of group B Strep infection in babies.
We are very grateful to all who support the charity and help to continue its vital work.
