Money
matters

Nobody should struggle to make ends meet. Foothold is here to make sure you don’t have to struggle without support.

How we can help...

You might not like to talk about money matters, but it's something that a lot of us struggle with sometimes. Everybody should have enough money to be able to pay the bills, and be able to spend on things such as getting around and keeping in touch with friends and family. Sadly, a lot of people are struggling to make ends meet.

Tools to help with money matters

We want to help you take back control of your money matters. There’s tools available for you to download on budgeting, planning your finances and dealing with debt in our library. There's also support available from Step Change, the debt advisory service.

Eligibility

We're striving to make sure that you and your family have enough income to meet the minimum income standard developed by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation to enjoy a socially inclusive lifestyle. So, if you've ever been an IET member and have less then £16,000 in savings, we can help you with your money matters.

You and your family don’t have to deal with money matters by yourself. Get in touch for a chat about how we can help you.
