Streets against sepsis

From coronation street to your street

let's unite to fight sepsis

Were you shocked by the story of 7-year-old Jack developing sepsis in Coronation Street? His story would have had a more tragic ending had it not been for a local hero – Ali, who spotted the signs and helped Jack get treatment in time.

As Jack’s story proves, sepsis can strike anyone, on any street. But by uniting to raise money for sepsis survivors and raise awareness of the symptoms, we can protect our communities – and even save lives.

That’s what Streets Against Sepsis is all about. And you can be part of it. Join a local fundraising event, get your school or workplace involved, volunteer, donate or do your own thing!

From kicking a winning goal to simply remembering to ‘Just ask: could it be sepsis?’, everyone can play their part in the fight against sepsis. What will you do? For advice and inspiration on a variety of activities, click on the image below to download and read our fundraising brochure.
