Marie Curie Cancer Care

Charity registered in Scotland SC038731

The Charity is established as a memorial to the late Marie Curie in lasting tribute to her life’s work, and in particular to her discovery of radium and its contribution in fighting the disease of cancer. The charity exists to serve all those with a terminal diagnosis, from cancer or other causes, their families and carers. The objects for which the charity is established for the public benefit are: 2.1.1 to provide and develop caring services, offering support, care and compassion through palliative care, advice and assistance for the benefit of people suffering from terminal cancer and other terminal illnesses and their families and carers; 2.1.2 to undertake and fund research into any aspect of the care and support of people suffering from terminal cancer and other terminal illnesses and their families and carers; and 2.1.3 to provide information, education and support to patients, their families, carers, those working in medical and other caring fields and the public regarding the care of people suffering from terminal cancer and other terminal illnesses.


Current opportunities

For those affected by a terminal illness, it can be hard to get support and they might feel lonely. By volunteering as a Check in and Chat volunteer, you'll be matched with an individual who needs emotional support and a chance to chat freely about how they're feeling.

Join Team Marie Curie as we cheer our kiltwalkers on from the sidelines! We can't wait to celebrate our Glasgow kiltwalkers and would love for you to join us on Sunday 28th April. The Kiltwalk is a popular walking event series in Scotland which takes place in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee and Edinburgh. Kiltwalkers choose to take on one of three distances: Mighty Stride (23 Miles), Big Stroll (17 miles) and The Wee Wander (3 Miles). We are very flexible with shift times and can work with what suits you best on the day. If you are interested, please click the ‘Apply’ button below (available when logged in and registered). You will then be contacted by the coordinator by email or phone call. If you have not heard back after 5 working days, the first step is to contact Carly at carly@myacademicfamily.org.uk. You could also check your junk/spam folder on your emails just in case the response is there. If that doesn’t work, please contact Volunteer Glasgow at info@volunteerglasgow.org.
