Marie Curie exists to provide a better life to people living with terminal illness, and their families. We do this by providing hands-on-care either at home or in one of our nine hospices. We also offer advice and services to support people to live well for as long as possible before they reach the end of their lives. As the leading voice on end of life care in the UK, we are the largest charitable funder of research into palliative and end of life care in the UK and we campaign to improve conditions for people living with a terminal illness.
