Support for members

IOM3
The Institute is aware that the foreseeable future will be difficult for a number of its members and is here to help those who find themselves in this unfortunate situation. The Institute has a career break rate for its membership fees of £41, while individuals who have been in continuous membership for two years or more may seek support from the Members' Benevolent Trust to pay their membership fees. This is a benefit of your membership, which over the years you have contributed too through your paid membership fees.
