Get involved

From trustees to awareness raising and fundraising, we rely on your support and we couldn't do it without you.


All IET Connect volunteers perform a vital role in helping us to provide the best support possible to members around the world.


Our Trustees oversee the running of IET Connect and help to steer the direction that the charity takes and ensure that we comply with all legal requirements.

There are currently no vacancies for Trustees. Vacancies will be added when they are available.

If you are interested in becoming an IET Connect Trustee and would like to register your interest please email and we will contact you when we are next recruiting.

Local Representatives

We have a network of volunteer Local Representative across the UK who carry out home visits to IET members (past and present, and dependants) who in need of financial support.  Local Representatives also carry out annual visits for longer term beneficiaries.

If you would like information on what the role involves and opportunities near you please email

Help raise awareness

We want to make sure that as many people as possible know about IET Connect so that we are able to provide support to anyone who may need it. You can help raise awareness in a variety of ways including:

  • Handing out flyers at work, to your friends or at engineering related events
  • Having a promo box or link to us on your website or My Community site
  • Following us on Twitter or Google + and re-tweeting messages to your followers
  • Telling people about us, if you speak to someone or see a post on a forum and think we could help them, give them our details.

Don't forget we can help former members and the immediate family of current and former IET and IEE members.
