Charity insurance is available to protect small charities, community groups and other non-profit organisations. Whether you are searching for small charity policies or large charity cover, this guide will provide the information you require.
There are many risks which your charity faces, which could potentially lead to a claim. For example, one of your volunteers could be injured or a member of the public could have their property damaged. Although you can try to minimise risks, it is impossible to eliminate the chances of an incident occurring.
There are many forms of charity liability insurance available, although some are more common than others. Your exact insurance will depend on the unique requirements of your charity. Some popular forms of insurance include:
This type of policy will protect you against claims related to your customers and members of the public. If they become ill, injured or suffer property damage your charity could be held liable.
Professional indemnity insurance will cover the cost of any potential claims resulting from poor advice or service provided by the charity.
This is an ideal option for charity shop insurance, as it will cover the cost of replacement of items in the store if they are damaged, stolen or lost.
If your charity employs staff or volunteers, this will protect you against claims relating to their illness or injuries.
Designed to protect against the various risks associated with running an event.
This will protect the charity as a whole and the trustee, against claims resulting from a wrongful act.
There are many situations where insurance policies are combined to provide comprehensive charity insurance cover. For example, charity event insurance can be combined with public liability insurance specifically for charity events.
The exact level of cover you require will depend on the size of your charity and the sector you operate in. There are also other factors to consider, such as risks associated with a high-level board of trustees. There are some legal requirements of your cover, which you will need to ensure you adhere to. For example, if you are required to hold employer’s liability insurance, you need at least £5 million worth of cover.
