Foothold We may not know much about engineering, but we do know engineers. We’ve been supporting IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology) members and their families to thrive – no matter what life throws at them – since 1890.
Throughout our 130-year history, we have continually developed vital services which support almost 1,000 people every year, right across the globe.
We’re here so engineers and their families never need to face life’s challenges without support. Whether it’s bespoke grants to help struggling families get back on their feet; advice and guidance on home and workplace issues from our expert partners; or digital resources to help people take control of their wellbeing, we provide a helping hand to engineers so that they can meet their needs emotionally, physically, and financially.
Funded by engineers, for engineers, Foothold is a starting point, giving engineers the tools they need to make their lives better – right now.
