Volunteer with us:

We know that little things can make a big difference for people and their families living with terminal illness  like having someone to chat to over a cup of tea, help to get to an appointment or run an errand, or just be there as a friendly ear. You can offer such valuable emotional and practical support by becoming a Marie Curie Helper volunteer.
Your support could help people affected by terminal illness get the most from the time they have left.

Keen to volunteer?
If you are interested in becoming a Helper volunteer, you will need to:
be aged 18 or over; live in the Dumfries & Galloway area; commit at least three hours each week for a minimum of one year; complete our training sessions; provide references from two people who know you well
Have a chat with us first to find out if this role is for you.
