Event Insurance for Scouts

Event Insurance for Scouts

Insurance cover for your Scout events

We’re well aware that many Scouting events, including jamborees, gang shows, fetes and family days, involve considerable financial outlay. Some of your outgoings might be recoverable if the event doesn’t go ahead, but much of it would not.


Our Scout Event Cancellation and Abandonment policy

What’s covered?

Reimbursement for the loss of expenses resulting from the cancellation or abandonment of Scouting event(s). The cancellation or abandonment must be beyond your control, such as severe weather.


Expenses that can be covered include:

  • Payments for publicity and advertising
  • Hire of marquees and other equipment
  • Purchase of perishable goods such as foodstuffs
  • Venue hire
  • Printing costs for tickets


Reasons for the cancellation or abandonment could be:

  • Event site being unavailable
  • Severe weather
  • Strikes and industrial action
  • Fire


For Cancellation and Abandonment, the cover must be requested at least 14 days before the beginning of the event.
