Using the stimulation of surprise and the outdoors, Odyssey takes people on a 5 day residential journey aimed at combating the psychological and emotional devastation caused by their illness.
Odyssey seeks out wild and peaceful places that are steeped in atmosphere, striving to give participants a rich and varied experience, with the chance to try activities they may never have tried before. Programmes are tailored so everyone can participate to a level with which they’re comfortable. Our aim is to challenge but not overwhelm.
The course is an adventure, and as with all true adventures those embarking on it do so with only a limited idea of what lies ahead.
Because of the high demand for places, patients must be referred onto a programme by a health professional involved in their care and registered with the charity. Odyssey Referrers can be found in hospitals, practices and or hospices throughout the U.K.
