We’re giving volunteers across Wales peace of mind with our Community Group Insurance Scheme.

We know that getting the right insurance cover can be expensive, so we’ve worked hard to make our scheme as affordable as possible by subsidising the cost and scrapping our administration fees.

The basic insurance cover is free to community groups formed and constituted in the last 12 months.

For groups who have been in existence for longer than 12 months, Keep Wales Tidy is asking for £70 for the cost of your personal accident and liability insurance cover. If groups join the scheme between June and December we ask for a contribution of £50 only.

Similar insurance schemes from other providers can cost in the region of £220 per year and we’d rather your precious resources went towards improving your local environment.

If you’re looking for cover when you’re using chainsaws or other power tools, then you’ll be asked to pay the actual additional cost of £30.

If any group needs increased public liability cover then you’ll be asked to pay the actual additional cost of £25.

We always promote best practice and encourage all community groups to take out their own personal accident and public liability insurance so that you’re fully covered when working independently.
