Frequently asked questions
Is community group insurance a legal requirement?
If you have employees within your group, employer’s liability insurance is a legal requirement. You’re not legally required to have public liability insurance, though it is recommended if you’re a business owner. The legal cost could be insurmountable if a successful claim is made against you.
Can we get insurance if we’re not a registered club?
Yes – you don’t need to be a registered charity to get cover for your group. Many of our clients are small charities or community organisations that are new or are too small to be a registered charity.
Are volunteers covered?
Yes - the employer's liability and public liability section of the policy provides cover for your volunteers. As long as you have this policy in place your volunteers will be covered.
Does the public liability section cover events?
Yes, public liability insurance provides cover for charity events (such as fundraising) for up to 500 attendees.
Can we get cover if we don't have a regular meeting place?
Yes. We cover hundreds of groups that don't have a regular meeting place and prefer to host at different premises such as members' homes, village halls and community centres.
