More than an insurance policy

We’re owned by a charity and over the years we’ve built strong relationships with key organisations such as the CFG which means we're part of the community we serve.

My role is to support our network of independent charities serving unpaid carers. To do so, we need strong partnerships such as Ecclesiastical. Not only do they provide insurance expertise for our sector they also bring something extra to the relationship – actively participating in our events and conference, bringing their know-how freely to the table by delivering webinars and being a critical friend to support the Network Support Team to navigate and understand challenges in the sector
