Find out more about the specialist Girlguiding insurance policies, we can arrange for your Guide unit, district, county or campsite.
There are several reasons why your Guide unit needs to consider its own insurance cover:
The things your group owns, such as buildings, equipment, money, minibuses and other motor vehicles are not covered under these policies. Nor are the costs involved in events and trips you organise. You will have to arrange your own insurance for these.
If the buildings and equipment your unit owns were lost, damaged or stolen, you would pay for their replacements. For losses such as your Guide building or all your camping equipment being destroyed, you may not have readily available funds to replace them. Insurance can safeguard you and your property against the risk of loss, damage or theft.
Both motor insurance and employers’ liability are a legal requirement. Fortunately you already have Employers’ Liability Insurance for people you employ under the Girlguiding policy. However, if your unit owns any motor vehicles, such as a minibus, which is driven on public roads, you must have motor insurance.
As a partner of Girlguiding, we offer a range of useful cover you’re guide unit may need:
Some cover is required by law. If your guide unit owns, loans or rents vehicles, you must have motor insurance.
If a serious disaster strikes and your guide hut is damaged or destroyed, the right building and contents insurance policy can help pick up the bill for building repairs and replacing damaged contents.
If your equipment were damaged, lost or stolen, a suitable equipment insurance policy can help with the cost of replacing them.
If you’re planning and running an event, such as a fundraising activity, an event insurance policy can provide reimbursement for the loss of expenses if you event has to be cancelled or abandoned.
If you’re organising a trip, you should have a group travel policy which covers travel disruptions before you go and on the way back, your trip being cancelled or cut short, someone losing their baggage or a personal belonging being damaged or stolen or medical expenses if someone has an accident or illness.
