We’re supporting engineers and their families to step out of poverty and improve their health and wellbeing.
We’re Foothold, the Institution of Engineering and Technology Benevolent Fund. And we’re really passionate about supporting the wellbeing of past and present members of The IET and their dependents worldwide.


By providing financial support for those most in need, helping to lift them out of poverty and ensure they are in the best place possible to overcome the challenges that life brings, we strive to help engineers and their families to make positive choices that will change their lives for the better.

 

Our Trustees get together five times a year (once every quarter for Board meetings and for a strategy day in October) as well as spending time before the meeting reading the Board papers and preparing for the meeting, a commitment of 50-70 hours a year of their time.

 

They’re responsible for providing strategic direction and making key decisions to ensure we’re delivering on our objectives.

• they serve on our three Committees:

  • o finance audit and risk (quarterly)
  • o service development (twice yearly)
  • o renumeration and nominations (quarterly)

• they might advise on particular subjects related to their area of interest or expertise

• they are appointed for a three-year term, and can serve four terms maximum (two stints of two terms each, separated by at least 12 months) - if their circumstances change they can resign mid-term

• although this role is unpaid, they can receive money for expenses like childcare costs or travel for meetings
