"Clubs, groups and societies are essential to the communities they service, so by launching our new cover we are supporting them with appropriate protection and making managing their risks accessible and easy to understand."
- Sarah Cox, Ansvar managing director
Aimed at organisations such as orchestras, historical societies and cricket clubs, Ansvar’s policy provides protection for activities that include community engagement and recreational events such as selling goods for fundraising purposes and trade shows.
Included in the policy are three packages of cover (Essentials, Advantage and Advantage+) which have been designed to suit different organisations individual requirements. Furthermore this policy is complementary of Ansvar’s existing range of policies which currently provide cover for charities, charity shops, arts and culture organisations, and religious buildings.
This policy is for organisations that have an annual income of under £1m, assets of up to £2.5m, a payroll of up to £500k, and fewer than 500 volunteers or members.
Commenting on the launch, Sarah Cox, Ansvar managing director, has said:
“As a socially responsible insurer, we are committed to ensuring that community, not-for-profit and third sector organisations have dedicated cover for very specific risks. In 2021 we launched our charity and community cover specifically for registered and recognised charities, voluntary and not-for-profit organisations, and social enterprises.
“Clubs, groups and societies are essential to the communities they service, so by launching our new cover we are supporting them with appropriate protection and making managing their risks accessible and easy to understand.
“We are helping these vital organisations to receive the right cover for their requirements. Our Essentials, Advantage and Advantage+ packages can be tailored by adding and removing specific features, such as cover for a cyberattack, when goods are carried in transit and business interruption.”
