Marie Curie Project—Including Diverse Communities in End of Life Care

Marie Curie believes that everyone should have equal access to all the care and support they need if they are living with a terminal illness, regardless of their condition, disability or religious preference.

 

To help achieve this goal we are running a 3 year project funded by the Big Lottery Fund to look at the needs of people living with a terminal illness in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan, in particular:

  • People with dementia
  • People with learning disabilities
  • people with religious beliefs, including those with no religious beliefs

We are collecting the views of people in these groups in order to understand their end of life care needs and the barriers they may face in accessing appropriate services. We are also developing links with organisations who work with these groups in order to enable access to our services. The information gathered will be used to make recommendations to Marie Curie about the changes needed to service provision to improve access for these groups.

 

If you are interested in participating or would like more information about how Marie Curie can support you, please contact Monica Reardon on telephone
