Supporting GBSS makes a real difference.

Group B Strep Support is completely independent, and we receive no Government or NHS funding. We are mainly supported by the kind donations and from people like you. As a small charity our overheads are kept to a minimum meaning that donations received are used effectively to achieve our charitable goals. A small donation can go a long, long way – so please do support Group B Strep Support with whatever you feel you can.

There are lots of other ways that you can support Group B Strep Support. You can become a friend of GBSS by making a donation monthly or annually, and receive our regular newsletter with updates on events, news and research as it happens. You can also organise a sponsored event, or choose to host a Big GBSS Bake Sale in support of GBSS!

Every day 2 babies will develop a group B Strep infection in the UK – Joshua is one of them.

His mum Kathryn is just ONE of the many families we support every day. Read more about Joshua’s story here

Our work simply couldn’t happen without our amazing supporters. Without them we couldn’t continue our work to stop GBS infection in babies.  Thank you for each and everything you do.

“1 in 4 women carry it and don’t know they have it, I never got swabbed or checked for it. If I can help others and raise awareness of GBS by my story, please find and sign the petition for pregnant women being tested in the UK.”
