Financial support

Sometimes we all struggle to pay for the things we need, this could be because of redundancy, ill-health or unexpected expenses. Whatever the reason, we are here to help.

Contact us to find out how we can help.

If you are struggling with day-to-day costs, perhaps due to loss or change of income, relationship breakdown, bereavement, ill-health, disability or unemployment we may be able to help. Every year we provide hundreds of grants to IET members and their immediate families to help make their lives easier.

We are able to provide a wide range financial support. Grants amounts vary and are based on individual circumstances and need.
