Business Business Insurance Trade and Industry Not-for-Profit – Charity Insurance

Not-for-profit insurance is a type of insurance you should use if you are involved in the running of a charity or a not-for-profit organisation.  Maintaining the correct level of insurance cover to protect your organisation against liability claims or loss of assets is vital. You will also be conscious of the need to minimise the cost of your programme. Price stability and a quality insurer are vitally important in the non-profit sector; where funds may be limited and charity trustees have such an onerous duty of care. To fit these needs it is important you obtain impartial advice on your insurance needs.

Considerations for charities and NPO’s

  • Property insurance Cover for newly bequeathed or held in trust items, buildings, contents, portable equipment, and exhibition stands etc
  • Charity liability insurance Protection for the charitable organisation against claims made by members of the public or employees
  • Trustee liability insurance Essential protection against claims made as a result of errors or omissions of the trustees
  • Fidelity guarantee Protecting your charity or non-profit organisation against dishonesty or fraud by your employees or voluntary workers
  • Money and assault insurance Cover for charity volunteers and employees who are involved in the collection of cash donations
  • Professional indemnity insurance Cover if you provide a service or advice


  • This all depends on the type of activities your charity or business is involved in. The minimum cover is usually £1million but the standard cover nowadays is £2million upwards.

  • If you have volunteers, employees, labour-only sub-contractors etc who act under instruction from the charity or business then you will require employers’ liability insurance.

  • No, although the products are specifically designed for charities and not-for-profit companies there is no compulsory requirement other than employers’ liability.

  • Absolutely, in fact in some instances a commercial insurance policy make more sense and your insurance adviser would discuss the most appropriate product(s).

  • Yes, you can increase your excesses to reduce costs, your insurance adviser will explain the options to you.
