Charity insurance tailored to you

Giving your time and effort to a great cause can be hugely rewarding. If you run a small charity, social club, community group or not-for-profit organisation, you’ll know that it also comes with a unique set of risks.

From accidents involving volunteers or fundraising event visitors to allegations of wrongdoing against trustees, we understand that your organisation requires specialist cover.

What charity insurance do I need?

Public liability insurance and employers’ liability insurance are usually fundamental covers for charities. If someone is injured or their property is damaged because of your organisation, public liability insurance can cover up to £5 million of costs.

If you employ staff or volunteers – whether full-time or part-time – employers’ liability insurance is usually a legal requirement. It covers you for up to £10 million of costs if someone who works for you falls ill or is injured while working for you. If you have trustees, you may also be required to have trustee indemnity insurance.
