Public Liability Insurance 2018/19

The Neighbourhood Watch Network is pleased to announce the availability of free Public Liability Insurance for the whole movement to be covered to the value of £10,000,000, for the 8th year running.

Our broker, Miles Smith Insurance Solutions has been able to provide us with comprehensive cover via Aviva Insurance at a very competitive premium, ensuring that we value the important community role which volunteers undertake across the movement.

In addition to our usual cover, the PLI will continue to include 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 coordinators under the age of 80 years whilst they are undertaking tasks on behalf of NW.

The Certificate can be downloaded and printed off as and when needed.
