19. Do I need to have insurance?

All hosts should have insurance. Most take out Public liability, but it is usually Employers' Liability which is needed. We encourage hosts to talk to their current providers about cover.

These providers cover some of our hosts:
Naturesave www.naturesave.co.uk 
NFU www.nfumutual.co.uk 
Cornish Mutual www.cornishmutual.co.uk 
John Lewis www.johnlewisfinance.com 

WWOOFers - you are responsible for your own safety. Check you have insurance that covers medical care including transportation home, accidents, and loss of property. You should also be covered against you injuring other people or losing or breaking other people's property. Make sure your insurer knows that you will be a volunteer on a farm.

Some of our WWOOFers have taken out insurance with the following providers:
