We can’t wait to give you a huge cheer and a high five on the day!

Who we are and what we do

  1. Marie Curie is the UK’s leading end-of-life charity. We provide expert hospice care, and support over the phone, and we push for a better end of life for all by campaigning and sharing research to change the system.
  2. Whether you have months, weeks or days left to live, we're here for you with clinical and emotional care, supporting you to be comfortable, free of pain and other symptoms, and able to live the best life you can to the end.

  3. We're all unique, and what matters most to you matters most to us. We'll care for you at home and in our hospices, and give you practical and emotional help over the phone and online. We're here for the people closest to you too, right now and in the future.
  4. We provide expert hospice care wherever it's needed – either in a hospice or within the comfort of your own home.

  5. Our nurses, healthcare assistants and other healthcare professionals bring the nursing, clinical and emotional help you need to you, in your home. And we offer support to the people close to you too – from reassurance and practical information to letting them take a break.

  6. “Marie Curie was unlike anyone else on his journey. I'd been doing everything for him and knew exactly how things needed to be done – and Marie Curie just got it immediately. The sense of care they had for Neil; I can't even put it into words.” – Georgina Offord, wife of Neil.

  7. Every 5 minutes, someone in the UK dies without the care and support they need. But donations raised from events such as the Kiltwalk, help us to support more people in the UK so that more people get the care they need when they need it.
    £530 could help fund a Helper volunteer to support a household for a year. They help provide companionship to someone with a terminal illness, a simple chat with a cup of tea, or help with errands such as a food shop.
