Public Liability Insurance

Read about various specialist Community & Not for Profit Group Insurance providers.

The list has been compiled by BCC Corporate Risk Management for research purposes only. No recommendation is made regarding any of these firms or their products. A web search will provide further contacts if required.

Public Liability Insurance is designed for professionals and volunteers who interact with customers or members of the public. It protects against claims of personal injury or property damage that a third party suffers (or claims to have suffered) as a result of your business or volunteering activities.

As a hirer you must have public liability insurance for at least $10,000,000 whilst hiring a Venue. You must produce evidence of the insurance to Communify prior to the time of booking.  If you fail or refuse to arrange Public Liability Insurance then Communify may immediately terminate your booking. You must ensure that your Public Liability Insurance is kept up to date and continue to send Communify updated renewals if you are a regular client. The insurance must be under the name of the person or company booking the venue. Contact an insurance provider or broker to arrange your Public Liability Insurance, Communify CANNOT arrange this for you.
