Make a real difference as a Foothold company supporter

At Foothold we support over 1,500 people in the engineering community each year to live well and thrive. For over 130 years, our tailored support has helped engineers and their families through some of life’s most difficult challenges – including money problems, mental health crises, illness and disability, and more. We also offer free online resources to help them take control of their day-to-day wellbeing.

But we rely on donations from people and organisations in our community to fund all our life-changing work. By becoming a Foothold Supporter today and pledging just £1,500 each year, you can help us ensure no engineer or their family has to face life’s challenges alone, whilst also gaining access to exclusive Company Supporter benefits for your staff and business.
