What insurance do social workers need?

Public liability insurance is often an important cover for businesses, in case someone is injured or their property damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.

If you have employees, contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you’re required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance. It’ll cover claims from employees who’ve been injured or become seriously ill as a result of working for you.

Social worker insurance policy details

  • Make sure you read your policy documents carefully and that you understand any exclusions that may apply
  • If you employ people, even in your own home, you’re legally obliged to take out employers’ liability insurance. Not doing this could lead to a heavy fine
  • Are you working with children? If so, make sure that you check the details of your policy. Exclusions regarding work with children can vary by insurer.
