Why do I need Insurance for a Hackspace?

Your Hackspace brings together people in the community providing support and company  You will have made it as safe as possible but risks cannot be completely eliminated. You need to ensure that the people, the building and all equipment and stock are protected from things like theft, flood, storm, wilful harm and other risks.

What is typically included?

We’ve been working along side Hackspaces all over the country and understand they have unique requirements.  Our specialist policy can be tailored to your needs and can include:

  • Public liability at a range of monetary limits – this means that you are covered for compensation claims and legal costs if anyone suffers personal injury or property damage because of your business. 
  • Employers Liability – this will provide cover against injury to volunteers and employees. 
  • Trustee Indemnity – ensures that if a breach of trust, breach of duty or negligence claims are made against the trustees they will not have to personally pay legal claims.

  • Building and/or Contents cover – protect your Hackspace as you would your home.
