With your asset lock in place, your Community Interest Company (CIC) will have slightly different needs to a traditional business.

Despite your company working towards a positive goal, this doesn’t leave you exempt from things going wrong. Should this negatively affect someone else or their property, your community interest company could be held liable. Whether someone suffers an injury at a fundraising event or your computer systems are struck by a cyber-attack causing a data breach, the legal proceedings which follow can be costly and time-consuming. CIC insurance can help to cover the financial cost of such a claim.

With almost 90 years’ experience insuring not-for-profit organisations, community groups and community interest companies, we’re able to tailor a solution to your unique needs. Our team will compare products from multiple major insurance companies to ensure you receive competitive cover which accurately supports your CIC against the unique risks it is exposed to.
