Markel Insurance

Social welfare insurance

With over 25 years of experience supporting care and charity clients, Markel is one of the UK’s leading care and charity insurers. So, we understand this diverse sector has a broad range of insurance requirements.

Social welfare insurance cover

Our comprehensive package policy caters for a wide range of charities, care providers, social enterprises, and not-for-profit organisations. As we specialise in more challenging risks involving the care and support of vulnerable and disadvantaged people, the cover addresses areas such as abuse, breach of professional duty, medical malpractice, and volunteers.

Policyholders can also benefit from valuable additional covers such as fidelity, cyber risks and legal expenses.

More than just insurance cover

We’re not only an insurance provider. We can support our social welfare policyholders with risk management and business development through our care and health consultancy service.

Policyholders receive eight hours of complimentary business consultancy support from experienced care practitioners. Our in-house tax and legal advice helplines are free to access, helping clients manage their day-to-day operational and management challenges.
