As part of BHIB Insurance Brokers, we pride ourselves on our national coverage and our Chartered Insurance Broker status. Our relationship with Aviva has meant that we are able to offer comprehensive insurance cover designed for your Council.
No Council is the same. That's why our insurance policy consists of a range of covers to protect not only your Council or Parish, but also your clerks, councillors and volunteers. So from public liability insurance to risk assessment advice, we’re here to support you.

Covers you against any accidental injury or damage caused to third parties or their property. Whilst this is not a legal requirement, it is recommended for organisations that interact with the public.Limits higher than £10 million are available.

Up to £125k
Covers losses which you may sustain from fraud or dishonesty of employees. Whilst this isn't a legal requirement, we provide this cover as standard to maintain best practice for your Council.
Here at BHIB Councils Insurance we know how valuable your time is as a Council member. This is why we have designed a product that means you do not have to update your policy when your Council takes responsibility of new assets - just make sure the assets you have insured still fit the limits of your policy.
Our policy provides automatic limits of cover, meaning that assets such as street furniture, war memorials, playground equipment and much more can be acquired with no changes required to your insurance policy. These limits can be increased at any time should this become a requirement.
In addition to this, our policy provides cover for certain events held by Local Councils, subject to the adherence of safety guidelines which are detailed within the policy.Request a Quote
It is more important than ever to have insurance experts who know our sector and upon whom we can rely on when arranging the right protection for Local Councils delivering services and representing communities. Without doubt, BHIB has shown a very strong commitment to the sector and I trust the Councils will have the same confidence that NALC has developed to consult with BHIB to affect all their insurance needs.
Sue Baxter, Chairman of NALC
NALC has worked closely with BHIB over the last 18 months and I have been impressed by their commitment to the sector and supporting communities. They have taken time to meet with key stakeholders from county associations and actively consider how their products can develop to reflect the growing challenges facing the sector.
