Tailored nanny insurance coverage

As a nanny, you’re in a position of great responsibility, so you need nanny insurance that can cover the risks you face.

If the worst happened and a child suffered an injury while under your care, public liability insurance could cover the compensation payment if you were held responsible. Then there are other covers that can be useful for nannies too, including business equipment cover and business interruption cover. And remember that you’re likely to need employers’ liability insurance if you employ anyone.

Sort your nanny insurance in minutes, so you can get back to what you do best.

What insurance do nannies need?

Public liability insurance for nannies

Public liability insurance can cover injury or damage claims made against you. For example if a child in your care slipped on a spillage that you hadn’t cleaned up, or if you knocked over an expensive vase while in a client’s home, you might face a compensation claim. Your public liability insurance could cover the legal fees and compensation payment, up to your policy limit.

Employers liability insurance for nannies

Employers’ liability insurance is a legal requirement for most businesses that have staff, and you can be fined if you don’t have it in place. This insurance can cover claims made against you by an employee for injury or illness that’s caused by their work, for example a nanny who suffers back pain after lifting and carrying young children without proper training.

Other covers for nannies

Other business insurance covers that could be useful for UK nannies include personal accident insurance, business equipment insurance and business buildings insurance. It all depends on the risks you want to cover - tailor your policy so that it works for you.
