Description3H (Helping Hands for Holiday) provides subsidised group holidays for the physically disabled at well researched venues and gives their carers valuable period of respite. Each group holiday (excluding short breaks) has at least two experienced leaders and care is provided by volunteer helpers. There is always a doctor or nurse in attendance or access to local medical facilities.

3H Fund awards grants to assist disabled people and their families on low income to organise a UK holiday for themselves. The grants are given for the accommodation part of the holiday and are paid direct to the chosen venue. The charity liaises with social workers and caring organisations to assist applicants and to identify those needing assistance.

3H Fund also awards grants to carers on low income to help them organise a break for themselves in the UK.
