Public Liability Insurance Certificate

The Neighbourhood & Home Watch Network has secured funding from the Home Office again for the 7th 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 continued cover at a very competitive premium, ensuring that we value the roles which volunteers undertake across the movement. Which includes 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).
