We provide care and support for more than 3,500 people living with a terminal illness in Wales each year.

Nursing care

There are around 150 Marie Curie Nurses working in Wales, caring for around 2,400 terminally ill people and their families in their homes each year.


The Marie Curie Hospice, Cardiff and the Vale, in Penarth, cares for around 1,000 people each year, including people staying in the hospice and those coming in for the day to use the hospice’s services.

Helper volunteers

Our Helper volunteers regularly visit terminally ill people in their home or talk on the phone, offering companionship and emotional support, as well as practical help. Helper volunteers are currently available in South Wales and we are expanding the service across Wales over the next few years.


Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, our services are offered free of charge to people with any terminal illness. We need to raise around £4.5 million a year to fund our hospices and nursing care in Wales.


We campaign on behalf of people living with a terminal illness and their families, to make sure they can access the high quality care they need when they need it most.
