Marie Curie Helper Service

It’s important to get the right care if you’re living with a terminal illness; but it’s also crucial to get the right support network in place for you and your family. Our Helper service can offer you regular support in your home from a trained volunteer.

What is the Helper service?

Someone to chat to over a coffee, helping you run an errand or being there when you need someone to talk to. That’s what a Helper volunteer is there for.
