Keeping your brain active
At Foothold we are committed to improving the wellbeing of the engineering community worldwide. That includes supporting you as you continue to learn throughout your life and helping you keep your brain active.
Supporting your learning
We provide specialist equipment to enable people to study. We also provide grants so that you can get to a club or activity that helps you maintain your curiosity in life. And if you or a family member has a learning difference, we have advice and tips to help you understand.
Legal support while learning
We offer legal support to people who are trying to understand their rights in accessing specialist education. Or for those who need some advice on protecting their ideas.
If you or your partner have ever been an engineer and have less then £50,000 in savings we can help with care and disability grants.
And if you or your partner has ever been an IET member with less than £16,000 in savings we can help you return to work.
There's a lot more support we can offer - get in touch with us for a chat about how we can help make your situation easier.
