Our new website is here!

We’re excited to announce the launch of our new website – www.myfoothold.org. The website is the latest change we’ve made to support IET members, their families, and the engineering community. 

Our Marketing and Communications Manager Li-Anne Quinn explains. “We’re very committed to our goal of supporting 3000 people a year by 2022.  To do that we wanted to augment our support (previously only through phone calls and emails) by having a website that also acts as a form of support. We hope that by doing this, more people are able to find the help they need at the moment they need it.”

The new, accessible website provides specialist resources from well-being and money advice to legal factsheets and guidance for carers. The resources are available free to anyone visiting www.myfoothold.org.

Along with all the immediately actionable advice and guidance, we will also be bringing you more stories of how people have changed their lives with a bit of support from Foothold. And we will be keeping you up to date with our strategy to support more people than ever before.

So please explore! We hope you’ll find the new website useful – let us know your thoughts on hello@myfoothold.org.

Do you need support right now? Get in touch with us on hello@myfoothold.org or +44 020 7344 5498

This money will cover all our everyday expenses until the government funding kicks in or we can start working again. I think it’s just brilliant that there is somebody giving this kind of support. Simon Gaze View story
I had never been in the hospital in my life. Then, out of the blue, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. After I came back from the hospital, it became clear that I wouldn’t be able to go back to work anytime soon. Alan Monelle View story
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
The way we have dealt with the last 12 months is with a positive attitude, laughter and not being afraid to ask for help. The financial help Foothold gave us meant less worry over bills and the girls didn’t have to miss out on things. Sharon Monelle View story
