At Unity, we arrange specialist insurance for UK children's and youth charities including  ScoutsGirlguidingthe Boys’ BrigadeNCS Programme Deliverers.

As a subsidiary of a youth charity, Scouts, we've significant experience, expertise and knowledge of the insurance needs of the youth sector and the way children's charities and youth groups operate and the many challenges they face. We keep on top of new and emerging risks and how we can help you manage them.

We’ve arranged charity insurance for over 80 years and are proud to have over 10,000 youth groups as our clients.

Our approach

Keep it simple

Jargon and small print can mystify and mislead. We give clear explanations and take care to give you accurate information and the most appropriate insurance.

Never miss a detail

Small things can make a big difference. That’s why we spend time getting to know the details so we can present your organisation to insurers in a way that best protects you.

Insurance with ideals

As a social enterprise, we don’t just arrange insurance for the sector, we support it too by giving all of our profits back to charity.

We only partner with insurance companies who genuinely understand and share our values and ethos.

The best cover

We want to ensure your charity is always well protected. We scan the most suitable cover options available and design a specialist policy just for you.

Our unique status means that we can call upon specialist underwriters for the sector. We are partnered with a number of key market leading insurers.  As a Lloyd’s cover holder, we have access to the Lloyd’s of London underwriters, while being a member of Broker Network gives us access to a wide variety of insurers.

Reassuring support 

As our client, you will receive support from our professional and empathetic account handlers who are dedicated to providing excellent service.
