Marie Curie

Charity registered in Scotland SC038736

Every day of your life matters, from the first to the last. We 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. We’ll 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 don’t know what to do next or just need to talk. We’ll be by your side with care and support every step of the way, bringing light in the darkest hours.


Current opportunities

Marie Curie Speakers play a vital role in spreading the word about the work of our charity in local communities across the UK. You're helping to raise awareness of our services among people who might not know who we are, inspiring them to get involved and support us.

Marie Curie Action Team volunteers are central to our work across the charity. Supporting our fundraising events helps to motivate our fundraisers and support vital care for people living with terminal illnesses and their families. Taking part in our campaigns and sharing what we're working on with others helps us reach more people with our work. By joining our action team, you'll get regular updates about opportunities to support us in a variety of ways to suit you. From the 2 minutes it takes to support our campaigning work or the morning you can volunteer to help at an event. Sign up online now to join our virtual action team.

Whether it is looking after collection tins or collection days or supporting your local community fundraisers in their office, we have the fundraising volunteer role for you.

Our fantastic fundraising groups help raise vital funds for people living with a terminal illness and their families. They play an important role by taking part in all our national fundraising campaigns such as the Great Daffodil Appeal, Blooming Great Tea Party and other yearly collections. We also rely on them to help organise fundraising events and activities within their local community. Our groups act as ambassadors, helping to spread the word about the work of Marie Curie and encouraging and supporting local people, clubs and organisations to fundraise for us too. All across the UK, groups of volunteers meet regularly to organise and support fundraising activities in their local community.
