Volunteering and Car Insurance

The Association of British Insurers has issued advice to confirm how it is supporting customers and communities that may be affected by Coronavirus.

From a volunteering perspective, their advice confirms that they are waiving any requirements for people who may be key workers or who may take on roles to offer support to people in their local communities. Therefore, anyone taking on a volunteering role and using their own vehicle will not need to notify their insurer at this time.

Volunteering during Covid-19 Crisis - Some Top Tips for Volunteers

1) Keep following advice and updates coming from the Government.

2) Keep washing your hands! Before and after your volunteering.

3) If you, or anyone in your household, has any Coronavirus symptoms, stay at home - don't risk passing it on to anyone else.

4) If you need to self-isolate at home, think about what kind of volunteering you could do from home.

5) Only do things you feel comfortable with. You may want to help others at this difficult time, but it is still OK to say no!
