Who we are: Access Insurance is an independent Chartered Insurance Broker specialising in the voluntary sector. Trusted to act for over 6000 charity and ‘not for profit’ clients, including many Scout groups, we also trade on social enterprise principles, giving an amount equivalent to half our profits back to charitable causes. We pride ourselves on providing a first class, personable service. Our clients know that they can rely on us when making a claim and also when arranging and adjusting their policy.


What our clients say: “What a pleasant surprise! We had been using the same company to insure our scout hut for a number of years not realising that there were much more competitive insurers out there.  For exactly the same level of cover, Access Insurance was able to offer us a premium which was less than half what we would have paid with our existing insurer.  Customer service was good, in fact the whole process was 'pain free' and I have no hesitation in recommending Access to other Scout groups.” Treasurer, 1st Presteigne Scout Group

Insurance for Scout Association members

We are delighted to have been appointed to arrange an insurance scheme on behalf of Norfolk Scout Association.

The scheme offers Scout and Guide Groups comprehensive insurance specifically designed with their needs in mind.

By negotiating on behalf of Scout and Guide Groups for the county of Norfolk, we have been able to use bulk purchasing power to reduce insurance premiums. We are now able to offer this scheme to all Scout and Guide Groups across the UK.

The Scout Insurance scheme is underwritten by Aviva, the UK’s biggest insurer.

Many Scout and Guide Groups have already taken advantage of this unique insurance scheme, the majority saving on their premiums whilst benefiting from the bespoke cover.

The Alan Boswell Scouts Insurance scheme has been arranged in conjunction with local Scout and Guide Groups and has been approved at District Commissioner level.

We recognise that the Scout Association is a charity and that funding at Group level is often very tight. Our aim is to provide a very cost-effective solution to your Scout and Guide Group’s insurance needs - thereby preserving your funds for Scouting or Guiding activities.

As with all our clients, you can expect the highest possible standards of customers care. We have a Scout Insurance specialist Roy Himpleman to take care of arranging your cover and the backup of a dedicated claims team should you suffer a loss.

Our in-house Risk Management Consultant can offer advice on calculating sums insured and help with Health and Safety matters.

For more details or a no-obligation quotation, please contact us on 01603 218000, request a call back or complete the enquiry form on our website.
