Charity: Group B Strep Support
Charity number: 1112065
Description: Group B Strep is the most common cause of life-threatening infection in newborn babies and of meningitis in babies under 3 months. Most group B Strep infections are preventable. GBS is a common bacterium 'carried' by up to 30% of adults. Usually harmless, yet it causes at least 700 serious group B Strep infections in babies in the UK each year. Devastatingly, most of these infections are preventable - simply and cheaply - by giving women in known higher-risk situations antibiotics in labour. Group B Strep Support (GBSS) is the only charity in the UK focussed on preventing group B Strep infections in newborn babies. We raise awareness of group B Strep and good preventative practice, offering information to families affected by group B Strep and relevant health professionals. Longer term, we support research into preventing group B Strep infection in newborn babies.

With some stores there are different rates or restrictions depending on what you buy - you can see more information on each store's page on our website.

It's also completely free for your charity. There are no joining or payment fees, so 100% of the donation will reach the charity.
We pay charities once a month by BACS via our payment partner, The Online Foundation.
You can view the status of every donation within your account. A donation will typically move from 'pending' to 'approved' to 'paid' over the course of a few months.
As a "thank you" for sending them sales and customers, our stores pay us a commission.
We use this commission to make a donation to your chosen charity.
We donate 50% of the commission we receive, with the other 50% used to fund the on-going development of Give as you Live Online, which is free to all charities and users.
All donation amounts we display represent the amount the charity will receive - a 5% donation means a 5% donation!
