Community groups do an excellent job of bringing people in their local area together through fun activities and events - but, like any event, it doesn’t come without risks. Whether you’re looking to organise a fundraising event or activities for youth clubs, something as small as a trip on a cable could lead to a costly claim.

Your demands and needs

This policy meets the demands and needs of community groups who are looking to insure their participation at events they’ve arranged to bring their community together. As much as you plan ahead, anything can happen (such as hot water being knocked off the table and scalding someone at a tea party), so you’ll want to consider taking out a public liability insurance policy that offers you financial protection if anyone makes a claim against you.

What does public liability insurance for community groups cover?

Our public liability insurance for community groups will cover organisers of community events for accidental injury or death to a member of the public as well as damage or loss of third-party property. As a policyholder, you will be protected from financial liability if a claim is made against you as the policy will cover legal fees and compensation payments.

Anything can happen during one of your events, so you want to be prepared. From trips and slips (such as falling after slipping on a wet floor) to damage to the venue you’re hiring (windows of the village hall could easily be smashed if you’re running ball games on the day!) public liability insurance has got you covered.

You may also wish to take out additional event insurance cover, such as:

  • Employers’ liability insurance - if you have staff (paid or unpaid) helping out at your event, this will cover you if they suffer an injury whilst working for you under your supervision or control.

  • Event equipment insurance - this cover will protect you for costs relating to accidental damage, theft or loss of equipment and stock which you hire or bring to an event that you’re legally responsible for (excludes venue fixtures or fittings).

  • Event cancellation insurance - the last thing you want is for the event you’ve planned to be cancelled, postponed or abandoned - but this type of insurance covers you for financial loss relating to these unfortunate instances. Get in touch with us to find out more about this cover.


What is public liability insurance?

Public liability insurance is a type of insurance cover which will protect you against liability for claims made by members of the public relating to accidental injuries, death and damage or loss of property. 

Do community groups need public liability insurance?

Whilst it’s not a legal requirement for you to take out public liability insurance, it’s certainly worth considering. You can find affordable public liability covers (such as our comprehensive policy here at Event Insurance Services!) which will protect you from third party claims. Any event presents risks, and you don’t want to end up out of pocket. That said, you may be asked to take out public liability insurance for some events (this could be by your local authority or landlord for example) before they go ahead.

How much is community group public liability insurance?

The cost of public liability insurance will be dependent on a number of factors, such as how many community events you’re organising, the nature of these events (events which involve dangerous activities can increase the price of insurance) and the level of cover you require for them. Here at Event Insurance Services, we offer both single and multiple event insurance cover, with one off insurance available from £66 and insurance for multiple events available from £174.

  • You won’t have to worry about being liable if an accident occurs at your event, meaning you can focus on the event itself and ensure everyone has a good time!

  • Your event will be compliant with landlords and local authorities (if they require you to have a policy in place for your events).
