The BHS holds insurance that covers our volunteers and their activities. Volunteer events are covered once those events have been reported to the National/Regional Manager. Our Welfare, Access and Safety Advisers are also covered for their actions within the remit of their role.
It is always a good idea to run your ideas for events past your National/Regional Manager before going ahead to make sure that they fit with the ethos of the BHS, that our insurance company is happy to cover them and that everyone is clear on the reason for the event and the expected outcomes.
Our insurance documents are updated each year, as soon as we have the new insurance documents they will be uploaded here. Please ensure you take a copy with you to any event. If you are travelling to carry out duties related to your role please keep a copy in your car. If you require a printed version please let your Role Coordinator know and they can post them to you.

Your National/Regional Manager should be made aware of these activities before they take place and careful consideration made about safety and permissions required for example in some cases you will need the council's permission to use tools on their land.
