Support we offer

Whatever challenges you're going through - big or small - we have varied and tailored support we can offer. We like to take a holistic approach to our support and we know nothing happens in isolation. So we'll talk you through how we can give you a helping hand to get you back on your feet.  And if there's something you're struggling with and can't see the solution below, get in touch with us and we'll figure out the best way forward - together. We've been here for the engineering community, IET members and their families since 1890 and we'll be here you whenever you're ready.
