Marie Curie are sponsoring the  Palliative Care category.

We’re the UK’s leading charity caring for people living with any terminal illness, and their families. 

Our nurses work night and day in people’s homes across the UK, providing hands-on care and vital emotional support. Our hospices offer specialist round-the-clock care in a friendly, welcoming environment - whether people are staying in the hospice, or just coming in for the day. And our trained Helper volunteers offer day-to-day support, whether that’s a cup of tea or just being there as a friendly ear.

We’re also here to make sure everyone affected by a terminal illness gets all the information and support they need, from our free support line to our award-winning online information. 

Our Palliative Care Knowledge Zone also provides vital information and support for health and care professionals caring for people at end of life.
