FAQs: Public Liability Insurance

Public Liability Insurance for Neighbourhood Watch schemes 2016-17: Frequently Asked Questions

The Neighbourhood & Home Watch Network has secured funding from the Home Office again for the 6th Year to be able to secure free Public Liability Insurance for the whole movement to be covered to the value of £10,000,000.

Access Insurance has been able to provide us with some additional cover at a very competitive premium, ensuring that we value the roles which volunteers undertake across the movement. Two such additions include cover for: Community Emergency Planning Committees and ’emergency neighbourly acts’ (if undertaken under the Neighbourhood Watch banner – see FAQs for clarity); and Personal Accident Cover for Co-ordinators under the age of 80 years whilst they are undertaking tasks on behalf of NW (please note personal accident cover does not include members).

The Certificate can be downloaded and printed off as and when needed.
