Our TeensPLUS programme started in 2017 as TeensOut. The programme was created to enhance the lives of young people with disabilities and young carers through days out.
Since March 2021 the programme has grown to include all young people with disabilities and young carers/young adult carers from ages 13 to 25. The TeensPLUS programme now provides activities to do at home and works with schools and youth organisations to arrange funded activities and day trips.
The TeensPLUS Challenge
In 2021, TeensPLUS, began the TeensPLUS challenges. The challenges were offered to teenagers with disabilities and young carers across the country and provided activities to try at home. Young people were able to try new things and develop new hobbies.
The challenges are now a regular 3H project and are open to all those with disabilities and young carers aged 13 -25.
Working with other Organisations
The Oaks Specialist College
The Oaks College approached 3H for funding at the end of 2020. The funds were to be used to give their drama group a theatre workshop day. Unfortunately due to Covid restrictions the college were not able to visit the Trinity Theatre, Tunbridge Wells until April 2021 but when they did get to visit, it was an amazing experience for all of them!

We work with organisations and The Cirdan Sailing Trust to provide young people with disabilities and young carers the opportunity to have an active role in a voyage. Each young person is involved in all aspects of running and sailing a majestic old sailing boat cared for and crewed by Cirdan Sailing Trust.
