Support Groups

Across the UK, thousands of support groups exist providing invaluable community help to people, often in difficult times.

The trustees of any support group need to consider their insurance needs but how do you know what support group insurance you should buy?  At Ladbrook, we work with over a thousand small voluntary and community groups and can help advise you on the various cover sections available and which are appropriate for your support group.

Support groups provide essential peer to peer support and often get involved in fundraising activities for medical or other causes.  We would be delighted to discuss your activities and the relevant support group insurance.

Customer Reviews

After several disappointing experiences with other brokers I found Ladbrook Insurance to be a breath of fresh air! Any queries I have had regarding my policy have been answered quickly and without any hassle.  The customer service is excellent. They have an extensive knowledge of their insurers and found me an excellent policy.  Thank you!

Samantha, Pass on Preloved Items

First class service from an agent who went above and beyond to source the perfect insurance for our charity, FASD Aware Northern Ireland.  Nothing was to much bother and someone was always on hand to answer any questions.  Thank you so much for all your help and for your kind and friendly service

Alison McNamara, FASD Aware NI

When we asked Ladbrook for a quote we had been looking for insurance cover for a month already with no luck.  As soon as we got in touch with Shelley and Tim we knew that they understood our sector better than anyone else. We felt that Ladbrook was genuinely interested to understand our work and to make sure that we had the right level of cover.  They also offered to review other insurance covers we had.  They worked on a very tight deadline and just before Christmas to secure cover for Micro Rainbow International.  It is the first time that we feel that our insurers actually care about protecting MRI’s important work for the community.  I am confident that this is the beginning of a long partnership.

Support Groups Insurance

For many support groups, the activities are fairly consistent and straight forward.  The purpose is peer to peer support and so many of our clients meet regularly, often at a third party premises that might require public liability insurance.

We have helped advise many groups including;

  • Cancer support groups
  • Mental health support
  • Dementia support
  • General peer to peer support
  • Bereavement support groups
  • Carer support networks

We would always recommend that your peer to peer group insures not just for public liability but also employers liability too.  This is because in the eyes of most insurers, volunteers for the group are treated as employers in the policy wording.

For many support groups we organise insurance cover for small amounts of equipment that they might keep, such as laptops, projectors or other items.

Get in touch if you would like to discuss the support group insurance you might need.
