Insurance

You should always consider whether you need insurance cover for your fundraising activity.

Key insurance types to consider whist Fundraising include:

Public Liability Insurance Cover

In the unfortunate case of an incident occurring during fundraising, somebody could take legal action against you for accidental injury or property damage. Public Liability insurance provides you with cover for legal costs in such a case. Public Liability Insurance is not mandatory, but it may be prudent to get if your event is open to the public. If hiring equipment or a service, you will also need to check that the provider has full insurance before signing the contract.

Event Cancellation and Abandonment cover

Recommended for bigger events where substantial sums of money could be lost if the event needed to be cancelled.
