Frequently asked questions
We're not a registered charity - can you insure us?
Yes. Many of our clients are small charities or community organisations that are just starting up or are too small to be a registered charity.
Does the policy cover volunteers?
Yes - the employer's liability and public liability section of the policy provides cover for your volunteers. As long as you purchase this section of cover from us, your volunteers will be covered.
Does the public liability section cover events?
Yes - the public liability section of the policy provides cover for charity events (such as fundraising) for up to 500 attendees.
We don't have a regular meeting place - can you insure us?
Yes. We cover hundreds of small charities and community groups that don't have a regular meeting place and instead rotate between different venues, such as members' homes, village halls and community centres.
Why should I insure with Markel?
Established over 25 years ago, we've gained an unrivalled understanding of the risks facing small charities and community groups, and our policies are specially designed to protect you.

How much cover should I choose for my youth club?
It is important to choose a limit that will not leave you underinsured in the event of a claim; consider the size of your organisation and the potential impact a claim could have on it. You may find that councils and village halls require your club to have a certain limit in place in order to use their facilities, so be sure to check before you arrange cover.
Our youth club insurance can be tailored to provide as little or as much cover as you need, so you are guaranteed to find the right cover, regardless of the size of your club.
