What does public liability for non-profit events cover?

Our public liability insurance will cover you for the following:

  • Accidental bodily injury to a member of the public

  • Accidental death of a member of the public

  • Accidental loss to third-party property

  • Accidental damage to third-party property

Our public liability insurance for non-profit events only covers you for accidents relating to members of the public attending your event, so you may also wish to take out additional insurance cover, such as:

  • Employers’ liability insurance - if you have staff and/or volunteers working at your event, this will cover you if they suffer an injury whilst under your supervision.

  • Event cancellation insurance - should the event you’ve planned be cancelled, postponed or abandoned, this insurance covers you for financial loss relating to such occurrences. 

  • Event equipment insurance - this cover will protect your organisation for any costs relating to accidental property damage, theft or loss of equipment which you hire or bring to an event for which you are legally responsible (excludes venue fixtures or fittings).

Please drop us a line if you would like to find out more about these different types of insurance.

Why do I need public liability insurance?

While public liability cover is not a legal requirement in the UK, some third-party venues or partners may require you to have it. As a non-profit organisation, you will be keen to avoid any additional costs for your event, however having insurance in place can give the policyholder peace of mind, for example: 

  • Knowing you are covered if things go wrong - meaning you can have a worry-free event!

  • If a member of the public is injured or the venue is damaged, you’ll receive the financial protection you need.

  • Your legal costs and representation will be covered.
