Education & community

Growth in the nation’s obesity levels coupled with worries about children and young people’s inactivity across the UK has led to the establishment of a variety of groups and projects tasked with encouraging individuals to increase their sports activity. It is important for education establishments and community groups delivering these initiatives to have the right insurance protection in place.

Whether your organisation is looking for cover for its legal liabilities or insurance for its assets, Sports Insure can provide a tailored package for your unique requirements. For example, we have seen a significant increase in businesses set up to contract into schools for after-school and school holiday activities. With local authorities continuing to outsource these types of sports and recreational pursuits, and county sports partnerships delivering the programmes to the community, having the correct insurance cover in place to satisfy council and government requirements is vital.
