Subjects:Marie Curie, we provide care and support for people living with any terminal illness and their families. We've been carrying out this vital work since 1948, last year we helped more than 60,000 people across the UK.

We are one of the leading end of life and palliative care providers and our service range from nursing care, hospices, research, information and support line to petitioning the government to change how we support those living with a terminal illness and their families and carers. During the Coronavirus pandemic, we have been working flat out in partnership with the NHS to ensure we can respond to stop them from being overloaded. Freeing up intensive care beds needed for coronavirus patients and exploring all the options to ensure we can be there to support dying people, families and the NHS.

A global pandemic clearly makes living with a terminal illness even more complex, our services are needed more than ever to give support at a very unknown time and to ease pressure from the NHS.

As a charity, we want to raise awareness of the services we provide, how people can access them and how individuals can get involved. All our talks are free.

Our talks: Across the Yorkshire, we have Marie Curie Speaker Volunteers and Community Fundraisers who can deliver free virtual talks using Zoom and other platforms.

Marie Curie Speaker Volunteers: Our volunteers are individuals who are passionate about the charity and the work we do across the Yorkshire and the wider UK. They all support Marie Curie and have different experiences of the charity either through the services we provide or through volunteering.

Community Fundraisers are the key link to the local communities and the charity, enabling supporters to fundraise or volunteer. They are knowledgeable about the charity's activities and direction, as well as what is happening in local communities.

We have given talks to a wide range of different community groups such as Rotary, WI, Brownies, U3A, faith groups and schools. Our talks will range between 10 minutes to 45 minutes depending on your needs.

All our speakers aim to give you an insight into the support Marie Curie gives to families facing terminal illness. They will tell you about the services we offer, our history, the current crisis we face and our future ambitions to address this.

Please note, at present, we are only offering Virtual (online) talks in line with the government guidance and to ensure our speaker\'s safety; but we do hope to be able to attend group meetings in person in the future. We will update this page to let you know when this can happen.

If you want to discuss the possibility of a talk please do not hesitate to contact our Speaker Coordinator Kerri Wheeler
