About Group B Strep Support

Charity number: 1112065

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.
