Odyssey Project Ltd
The Odyssey Project transforms the lives of people with cancer through residential programmes in outdoor locations near their communities. Patients consistently report a substantial improvement in their capability to enjoy life. Founded by cancer doctors, the Odyssey Project tackles the social and emotional challenges associated with cancer, helping patients to overcome feelings of despair, uncertainty or isolation by sending them on ‘adventures’ oriented around engaging with the natural environment, creative arts and team-based challenges. A grant from The Fore will increase the capacity of management team to focus on scaling and strategy from current operations. This will enable The Odyssey Project to double both the number of participants in its programmes and its geographical reach.
