Support us and each other

We value all the support we get from our community - your help goes a long way.

Help us make the most of your support via Gift Aid

It's a difficult time for many of us right now. At Foothold, we're still here for our community of engineers who need us. In the last eight weeks we have helped 312 engineers and their families in the UK and around the world. This is a 316% increase from last year.

With your support we're making progress. But there are many more engineers who need our help which means we need to make the most of every donation we receive.

Are you a UK taxpayer?

If you are, every pound you have donated to Foothold over the last 4 years could be worth 25% more, at no extra cost to you. All you need to do is make a Gift Aid declaration by completing the form below. It really is as simple as that and won’t cost you a penny.

I feel like I have a safety net which reassures me massively. We still have stressful days, but I can manage them so much better than before. Steph Phillips View story
