Support information to help you

Foothold is a starting point, giving you the tools to make your life better right now.

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. 

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
