Registered Charity Number 207994
At Marie Curie, we believe every day of your life matters - from the first to the last. Every five minutes, someone in the UK dies without getting the care they need at the end of life.
Without proper palliative support, people living with a terminal illness face a death without any dignity, comfort or vital pain management. Marie Curie wants to ensure that every person living with a terminal illness can expect to be safe, supported and listened to in their final days.
Our at-home nursing service and hospices deliver expert palliative care, emotional support, research and guidance to people and families across the UK. Help us give families the chance to make the most of the time they have together; because every day of our life matters, right until the last one.

More about Marie Curie
Our ageing population means more and more people are living with a terminal illness in the UK. Whether that's dementia, cancer, motor neurone disease, heart failure, Parkinson's disease, or any other terminal illness, we’re there to help people cope after a terminal diagnosis. But we urgently need your help.
Without your support, Marie Curie Nurses and hospices cannot offer the vital and person-centred palliative end of life care that people desperately need. We want to ensure everyone has the right to be cared for in the comfort of their own home or a hospice when the time comes - to be comfortable, free of pain, and treated with dignity.
Please help us ensure that anyone living with a terminal illness is able to get the most from the time they have left.
Whilst Marie Curie frontline teams are working day and night to meet growing need, Marie Curie needs to raise £13,888 every hour, 24 hours a day.
The impact of the coronavirus will be felt for a long time, particularly among families grieving the loss of a loved one. Marie Curie have updated information and support on their website if a family member or friend is living with terminal illness, or if you have a terminal illness yourself, you may be worried about coronavirus. Marie Curie is here for you .
Marie Curie know there is not a person or family in the country who is not touched by this emergency. But dying people and their families need help now.
