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 [email protected].
