Marie Curie in Scotland

We provide care and support for more than 7,400 people living with a terminal illness in Scotland each year.

Nursing care

There are more than 200 Marie Curie Nurses working in Scotland, caring for around 4,800 people living with a terminal illness and their families in their homes each year.


Our hospices in Edinburgh and Glasgow care for around 2,500 people each year, including people staying in the hospices and those coming in for the day to use the hospices’ 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 Fife and we are expanding the service across Scotland 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 £9 million a year to fund our hospices and nursing care in Scotland.


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.
