Have a voice
If you’d like to be vocal in your support for Marie Curie, then we have a range of volunteer roles to suit you. We've highlighted a few below.
Expert Voices Group Member
Expert Voices Group Members are people who have had first-hand experience of end-of-life care as a carer, family member or friend.
Members represent the voice of patients and carers and the group plays a key role in providing advice to help improve our services and develop new ideas.
Members can choose how they want to feed in to discussions – by phone, email or at a face-to-face meeting.
Carol joined the Expert Voices Group as a way of sharing her experiences of caring for her partner for over two years.
Carol says, “The Expert Voices group comprises volunteers from across the whole of the UK. They are people like myself who have cared for those we love, and there is an incredible array of backgrounds, ages, experience and lives. In the past year I have been involved in a huge variety of activities, including reviewing new leaflet publications and draft bereavement letters; a Carers Week speed networking event in Parliament and a case study for the new Care Bill amendment.”
Our Community Ambassadors go out and about giving talks about Marie Curie in their communities. We provide a toolkit of talks along with lots of information and statistics so our ambassadors can let people in their local communities know who we are and what we do. It’s a role for someone organised and enthusiastic as it is up to ambassadors to make local contacts and arrange speaking commitments.
