National Industries Charity  

“This Electrical Industries Charity has always been close to my heart since meeting Tessa Ogle (Managing Director of the EIC) and seeing their passion and great work they have achieved for our industry. Therefore we have made it our mission to create a dynamic, creative funding team to not only drive funding but also awareness for the EIC.” Richard Beighton - Managing Director  

Who Are the Electrical Industries Charity?

The Electrical Industries Charity (EIC) exists to look after people from the electrical, electronics and energy industries when they or their families need a hand up – big or small. They know that regardless of age or
circumstances, people encounter:
 
  • Family or relationship problems
  • Financial or legal worries
  • Emotional or mental health problems
  • Ill health or disability
The pressure can become overwhelming and the impact can be devastating for the individual and their family. The Electrical Industries Charity is there to help, providing the practical support people need to get back on their feet.
