What’s Special for Unretired
As a Helper volunteer you will take on a number of simple yet crucial tasks that will make a huge difference, this could be in a family’s home, a care home or out in the community. You will provide one-to-one companionship and support, offer a listening ear, and spend time engaging in everyday conversation, activities or hobbies with the person you are supporting. We will provide you with extensive training so you can take on the role confidently.
This role is wide-ranging and the support you offer will vary according to the needs of those using the service, though it is important to note that Helper volunteers do not provide nursing or personal care, nor offer counselling or advice.
The Marie Curie Helper service offers crucial support to those needing a helping hand towards the end of their lives. The service would not be able to reach those most in need if not for the commitment and hard work of volunteers like you.
The need is in various places across the UK. Click here to see the entire list.
