Funded by engineers for engineers - your Foothold is here.

All the ways your Foothold is here for you

Foothold is a small organisation but we have big plans. We're expanding the number of partners we work with to help increase the varied support we offer. We've begun working with experts and supporters to create a library full of useful guides and advice. We're planning to triple the number of people we help by 2022. To do that, we're constantly looking at ways we can provide support. And we're working with our community more than ever — to create community stories, recruit wonderful volunteers and fundraise. We're mainly funded by IET members' donations but we work independently of The IET. Check out all the ways we're working hard to make sure we've got your back.
