Organisation aims and objectives

Every day of your life matters, from the first to the last. Marie Curie believe everyone living with a terminal illness should be able to get the most from the time they have left, however hard that may sometimes feel. They will be here for you and your family when you may feel like no-one else is, to help you cope when you don't know how. Marie Curie Nurses care for you in your home, when you need them most, day or night. Our hospices are at the heart of communities around the UK. And our trained volunteers and advisers are here for you with practical information and support when you do not know what to do next or just need to talk. They will be by your side with care and support every step of the way, bringing light in the darkest hours.
