Combined liability tailored to you

Accidents happen, but legal definitions vary. Combined Liability insurance is a combination of all the different legal wordings you need, in one easy-to-understand bundle. 

Combined Liability covers for:

Public Liability

Covers injuries to third parties and damage to their property.

Professional Indemnity/errors and omissions cover

Ready if you are accused of making a mistake that leads to a legal claim against you.

Libel and Slander

When you say something you shouldn’t…and later regret it. More of a consideration than ever under GDPR.

Employers Liability

If employees or volunteers are hurt or killed, employers liability covers the financial consequences.

Management Liability

If you’re managing a club or organisation, management liability (also known as directors and officers insurance) you can be held personally liable for the actions of your co-directors. 


Where damages are awarded against your organisation, abuse cover will protect the organisation (but not the individual).

More than just insurance, we can also include:


24/7 Counselling helpline

Stress and mental health can affect anyone – someone to talk to openly makes a big difference


24/7 Legal helpline
