about Unity

We're here to help

A specialist insurance broker that makes a difference…

We make a difference so you can make a difference

We're an experienced insurance broker that understands the needs of charities, community groups and businesses. We know that you need insurance policies you can trust. That’s why we work hard to find simple solutions to complex needs. We offer specialist services to Scouts, Girlguiding, the Boys’ Brigade, charities, community groups, not-for-profit organisations and businesses; all with an experienced and empathetic approach to our customers.

We're owned by the Scouts, a charity in its own right, and like them we understand the importance of making a difference to the lives of others. We share the same values of integrity, respect, care, belief and cooperation.

Finding the right insurance for you.

Unity Insurance Services is your friendly specialist insurance broker. We’re here to help with the insurance needs of Scouts and those in the not-for-profit sector. We can help you with everything from protecting your people, through to protecting the buildings, vehicles and data they use. We understand your needs, making insurance easy so you can focus on making a difference to the lives of others.

We’ve learnt a lot over our 80 year history and we believe there’s no such thing as a silly question. How do you insure a camel anyway?

We’re a UK based company, here to support and advise you, making sure you’ve got the right insurance. For over 80 years we’ve provided bespoke policies and protection to the Scouts as well as to Girlguiding, the Boys’ Brigade and many other charities in the UK. We’re a wholly owned subsidiary of the Scouts returning funds to help young people learn skills for life.
