Insurance is a key part of the risk management process for charities and non-profit organisations. It’s important that these groups who do so much good, with so few resources, protect themselves; charity insurance can provide that protection. With the financial security provided by insurance, your organisation can focus all its resources on its charitable aims.
The first check is to ensure you’re complying with the law. Employer’s liability is a legal requirement if you have employees. £5 million is the minimum indemnity, but £10m is standard. Specialist charity insurance may cover your volunteers as if they were employees rather than third parties covered by your Public Liability.
If you own and operate vehicles, you’re legally required to appropriately insure them, if you put on fundraising events, you need public liability insurance, and if you have data online, you need cyber risk insurance -there will also be other instances where you could be vulnerable.
Is it important to be insured beyond the legal requirements?
Yes! Insurance exists to protect your organisation and your assets from the financial impact of claims. Should a member of the public slip on your premises, despite your best risk management efforts, you may be liable – this is the sort of claim that could cause financial ruin and put a stop to all the good that you have been doing.
What could happen if you’re not insured?
It depends on your charity or community group governance. However, if you’re not a registered charity and someone makes a claim against you, then you may be personally liable. Equally, even if you are a registered charity, a claimant may choose to take the charity to court and may pursue compensation from the trustees.
Whatever the situation, if you don’t have insurance then your charity or non-profit is at serious risk of financial ruin. And there’s potentially a significant risk to the board of trustees too.
What should you do about insurance?
The first step towards insuring your organisation should be discussing your requirements with an expert. We can assist you with your insurance requirements and risk management.
What charity insurance should you consider buying?
You may consider a range of insurance products. Common cover required by charities and community groups include Public Liability, Property, Trustee Indemnity, Professional Indemnity, Fidelity and more.
What are the common insurance covers for charities and community groups?
Public Liability protects you from claims made by members of the public who have suffered personal injury or property damage because of your charity or community group. Property Damage insures your building, contents and assets against loss, theft or damage and is key to risk management.
Trustee Indemnity protects your board of trustees from claims made against them or the organisation. This will help your trustees sleep well at night and can help you recruit top quality trustees. Professional Indemnity protects you if you provide any professional, advice or counselling services or similar. And Fidelity cover insures you against theft or fraud by an employee, volunteer or trustee. Other types of insurance are available.
Where should you start your search?
Find an insurer who will know exactly what you need, and get their advice. They will know more about your requirements and about the products available.

If you’re never without your mobile phone or you like catching up with shows on your tablet every morning during the long commute, you might want to consider adding personal belongings insurance to your current buildings or contents policy.
While your contents/home insurance protects these items in your house, the cover stops as soon as you take them outside the boundaries of your home.
We get claims for:
- Phones left in taxis
- Cameras lost on holiday
- Rings and jewellery that slip off in the sea
- Wallets and purses left in the supermarket by mistake
- Leaving your iPod on the train
- Having your watch stolen from a hotel room
To insure against these kind of things, you’d need to add Personal belongings cover. It’s there to help when you’re out and about.
There are multiple aspects that make up insurance policies. While you may not fully understand each section of the contracts, it’s important that you learn and understand what the contract specifies, including your limits. That way, if you need to file a claim, you will know what the insurance company will and will not cover.
Why is personal belongings insurance important?
Personal belongings insurance offers protection for your personal effects when they are removed from your home. If an item of yours is lost, stolen, or damaged while away from your home, it would allow you to replace that item.
Most of us don’t realise how much the items we carry around with us every day are worth. A tablet and mobile phone could be worth several hundred pounds by themselves, let alone any money we may have in our bags and pockets.
Is there anything Personal belongings cover won’t cover against?
Yes. It doesn’t cover:
- Wear and tear
- Things that are damaged through everyday use (e.g. sports equipment)
- Things stolen from cars or vans, unless they’re out of sight and someone had to break in to find them. (So a handbag that’s locked in the boot and can’t be seen from the street would be covered. But a Tom-Tom that’s there on the dashboard wouldn’t).
- Pets and other animals.
It doesn’t cover things that are used for business, either, which would include:
- Business cash, credit or debit cards
- Tools, even if they’re locked up and can’t be seen.

The process of getting your insurance setup or making a renewal is not something everybody enjoys so why spend time over it? It is surely possible to visit an insurance site and purchase the first premium you come across, but it is always recommended you compare small business quotes. Spending time to compare the options available to you may take a little more time but you’ll reap the rewards.
Benefits of Small Business Insurance Comparison
Taking the extra time involved to compare small business quotes can deliver many benefits. Some are instant, speeding up the buying process. Others are most long-lasting and can have a long-term impact; The benefits include:
It is very unlikely that the first insurance quote you come across is going to be the most cost effective. It is definitely possible but it is unlikely. This is why spending a little time comparing quotes allows you to make a judgement about the best price for your circumstances. You can find the best option for your business quickly and efficiently.
Avoid Single-Insurer Affiliation
You will find sites which have a single insurance sponsor or affiliate. While they offer a range of quote options, you’ll see their affiliated company at the top of the list time and again. Independent brokerages focus on finding the best deal for you. This is instead of ensuring their partners get as many new people signed up as possible.

A guide to Professional Indemnity Insurance
What exactly is Professional Indemnity Insurance? And do you need it?
Quite simply Professional Indemnity Insurance is a type of Insurance to cover any individual or company that provides a service or advice for a fee. In other words, if you have certificated a piece of equipment as an Electrical contractor and then the equipment causes a loss to the client then this would be a Professional indemnity claim.
Another example would be if, as a professional, you give advice to a company and they follow that advice that causes them a loss then they would be able to make a claim on your Professional Indemnity Insurance too!
More businesses should have this cover
Less than 25% of UK businesses that really should have PI insurance cover actually do so, why is this? Basically it is because either they, or their current insurance providers, don’t understand it. They have more than likely not identified that such an exposure exists within the business and have therefore not catered for it fully.
This is where we can help with our over 30 year’s relevant Insurance industry experience. We can offer not only a free quotation but also specialist advice on how to fully to protect you and or your companies exposure thereby providing you with Professional Indemnity cover that fully suits your requirements.
Why choose Professional Indemnity Insurance Cover?
Why should you purchase this cover if you already have Public and Products Liability cover you may well ask? Well, Public Liability Insurance will basically provide cover for injury etc. to the Public. Products Liability will, in essence, pick up any loss or damage to a third party should a Product that you have supplied fail or be faulty. These will pick up the tangible asset damage but what about the financial loss arising from any advice that you have given? This is where PI (Professional Indemnity) becomes a must have cover.
Do you design something for a professional fee, such as an architect would? If you do, and then, for instance, a builder or manufacturer goes on to build or make the product to your specification, what happens if the item or build isn’t correct and then, as a result, causes a loss to a third party? This again would be a Professional Indemnity claim against you and your insurers which you need to make sure that you, as a responsible business, have got covered.
We can help you with your Insurance questions!
If you are unsure of your real world exposure then please do get in touch with our experts now and, even if only for peace of mind, let us advise you correctly so that you can make a fully informed decision regarding your insurance requirements.

Landlords Insurance is a different type of Insurance to standard Home Buildings and contents Insurance, standard Home Insurance policies do not cover many of the contingencies required by Landlords Insurance.
There are various specific unique insurance covers needed such as Property Owners Liability Insurance, this is cover for the Landlord or Property Owner. This will cover for injury to the general Public as part of the Landlords buildings Insurance. A common claim could be, for instance, where a loose roof tile comes off in a storm and hits either a third party person or third party’s property. In such a case it is then that Property Owners Liability Insurance, which is part of the covers JustQuoteMe Landlords Insurance provides, comes into its own.
How do you compare Landlords Insurance quotes and what does it cover?
First of all, compare the small print detail of the Landlords Insurance. Look at each individual section of the policy and compare your shortlisted policies side by side.
Another cover section that is unique to Landlords Insurance or Property Owners Insurance is that this type of Insurance cover helps with Loss Of Rent.
Quite often, during a major loss, the landlord or property owner can be left waiting to get repairs effected and will be in the hands of builders until the repair work is completed. It is one thing to rebuild the property, or repair property damage, but what about the loss of rental income during this period? Well this is where this cover section can prove to be invaluable for property owners and landlords. It means that any of our clients, with Landlords Insurance and Property Owners Insurance cover, can continue with their lives whilst the bricks and mortar are replaced!
And what about the all-important buildings sum insured amount you may ask? Well, what on earth do you, as a landlord seeking property owners insurance, set the sum insured to? Here is a bit of a tip regarding the buildings sum insured – it should be set for the cost of any potential rebuild and not the saleable value of the property!
Remember, a property in for instance London, may sell for ten times the value of a property in the North of the UK, but the rebuild cost is virtually the same. It is the same give or take the varying builders rates in different areas, so be careful when setting the building sum insured! Make sure that it covers just the rebuild cost. We would also always advise a contingency of, say 15%, on top of that figure for debris removal too. This is because the builders will have to clear the site before they can actually make a start and commence the rebuild!
Our Property Owners Insurance and Landlord Insurance Cover
Our unique Landlords Insurance can also accommodate ‘Landlords contents Insurance’. This is great if you provide, for instance, white goods or basic furniture which in the event of a total loss you would want repayment for. In this way, you can mitigate your risk as a property owner and this is another option we can incorporate for you.
Rent guarantee and Landlords legal expenses are another key area that a lot of providers forget to either advise on or can’t actually offer cover for. JustQuoteMe can offer both and, bear in mind, Rent Guarantee Insurance covers the Landlord for loss of rent subject to the tenant not paying the rent. This is known as an insured peril! If you have a large portfolio of property then this type of cover can prove to be invaluable. Finally, Landlords legal expenses covers you for legal disputes with Tenants etc. and assist both parties in, hopefully, coming to an amicable agreement.
Landlords and Property Owners Insurance cover can be a bit of a minefield but, with the right policy in place, you can rest easy with Just Quote Me!
