The Marie Curie Trust are looking for dedicated volunteers for their Helper and Companion Services in
The Helper Service offers emotional and practical support to people in our area living
with a terminal illness. This includes visiting them at home, going out with them, or talking to them
over the phone.
The Companion Service is based at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton and offers one-to-one support for patients and their carers in their final days or hours of life. Volunteers give around three hours each week and provide companionship, comfort and emotional support for people on the hospital wards as well as family and friends who are visiting them.
All services are completely free to the terminally ill person and full training and travelling expenses are given for all
volunteers. If you are interested please phone 0800 304 7400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
