Thanks to you, we helped 50,000 people last year
Marie Curie was there for more people than ever before in 2015/16, whether they were living with a terminal illness themselves or caring for a loved one.
We reached more than 50,000 people when they needed our help, with vital nursing care, practical information and timely support.
Our supporters and volunteers have worked wonders – their generous donations and fundraising efforts made it possible for us to support people across the UK through one of the most difficult times of their lives.

- Marie Curie Nurses cared for 31,755 people with a terminal illness in their own homes.
- Marie Curie Hospices cared for 8,638 people (3,139 as in-patients).
- Our 460 Marie Curie Helper volunteers supported 979 households affected by terminal illness.
