Charity Shield

Insurance for charities, not-for-profit organisations and community groups. 

We understand that every charity and community group has individual needs and requirements, so our policy is flexible to make sure you have the cover you need. 

We have many years of experience insuring charities, non-for-profit organisations, and community groups. So insuring your organisation through us will give you the peace of mind you need to keep your focus on the great work you do. 

Deciding what cover you need can seem like a daunting task. Our specialists take the time to understand your requirements before offering the solution that best meets your needs, so you know you’re adequately covered without paying over the odds for a policy more comprehensive than your needs.  

Cover includes: 

  • Property

     
    Protection for your premises, contents and stock against damage from causes including fire, explosion, storm, flood, falling trees, vandalism, escape of water, vehicle impact and theft. The cover can also be extended for contents that are away from the premises.

  • Equipment breakdown

     
    Cover for equipment including boilers, lifting equipment, central heating or air conditioning systems, security and sound systems, computers, photocopiers and other office equipment.
  • Business Interruption

     
    Your income can be reduced if there is damage to your premises or those surrounding you, failure of public utilities, discovery of vermin or pests, a specified disease, food poisoning, murder or suicide. The policy protects you against this loss of income.
  • Liability

     
    The policy covers you for damages and legal costs if you are legally responsible for causing bodily injury or damage to property.
  • Charity Trustee insurance

     
    Cover for the personal liability of trustees, officers, employees or voluntary workers, which can be increased.

    Cover for legal fees, compensation awards or appeal costs arising from a wide range of legal disputes that you may become involved in.
  • Money

     
    Cover for business money that is lost or stolen from your premises, your home, an employee’s home or whilst in transit.
  • Assault

     
    Cover for you, your employees or volunteers if you suffer an assault during a theft of money.
  • Fidelity

     
    Protection for you against the loss of money or goods resulting from the dishonesty of employees and volunteers.

    If your organisation is involved in the distribution of stock we will cover your goods in transit.
  • Personal accident
