Marie Curie Helper Service

Support when you need it if you are living with a terminal illness.

Someone to have a chat with over a cup of tea, help you get to an appointment or run an errand, or just be there to listen when you need a friendly ear. Our Helper volunteers can be there for you for exactly these things. 

Once we’ve got to know a little bit about you, your interests and your needs, we’ll match you with a trained, dedicated volunteer. They’ll spend up to three hours a week visiting you at home or talking with you over the phone. 

It’s up to you how you spend your time with your Helper volunteer – you might just want to chat or there might be something practical your volunteer can help you with. The service is entirely based around your needs.
