Grant Programme

Our grant programme assists families on a low income who have a family member with disabilities to organise their own UK holiday. The grant is given for the accommodation part of the holiday and is paid directly to the chosen venue. The charity liaise with social workers and caring organisations to assist applicants and to identify those needing assistance.

Carers can also be awarded a grant for a UK holiday away from their caring role.




“I don’t even know where to begin to tell you how thankful we are that 3H allowed us to go on that amazing week away. It was perfect from beginning to end…. like a dream come true, to go somewhere that all the family can take part and be together. Holly achieved so much – abseiling, cycling, sailing, canoeing, swimming… the memory will stay with me forever. We also made some wonderful friends there, the disco night was a night I will never forget….thank you so much 3H, it was one of the best weeks of our life.”
