Group B Streptococcus is the UK's most common cause of life-threatening infection in newborn babies & of meningitis in babies under age 3 months. On average in the UK:

  • 2 babies a day develop group B Strep infection
  • 1 baby a week dies from group B Strep infection
  • 1 baby a week survives with disability

Most of these infections are preventable.

Group B Strep Support works to stop group B Strep infection in babies and save tiny lives. We

  • inform health professionals and individuals how most group B Strep infection in newborns can be prevented;
  • offer information and support to families affected or potentially affected by group B Strep; and
  • support research into preventing group B Strep infections in babies.

We provide leaflets, posters and other information materials to all NHS maternity hospitals and to GPs countrywide. 

We receive no NHS funding: families affected by GBS raise most of the charity’s funds. Please be generous in your support and help save tiny lives.
