Repair Cafés are about bringing people together to fix, upgrade and maintain almost anything portable that might be in need of some extra care. They bring communities together allowing people to work together, helping each each other to repair much loved items, reducing wastage.

For the safety of everyone and everything it is important to have the right insurance cover.

At E&G, we understand that each café has unique needs and we have an exclusive, tailor-made insurance policy that is flexible to meeting your needs, whilst remaining competitively priced.

Why do I need Insurance for a Repair Café?

You will have made your café as safe as possible but risks can never be completely eliminated.  You need to ensure that the buildings and all equipment and stock are protected for things like theft, flood, storm, wilful harm and other risks, and that people (volunteers and members of the public) and their property is protected against injury or damage.

What is typically included?

We work along-side Repair Cafés all over the country and understand each one is different.  Our specialist policy can be tailored to your requirements 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.  
  • Business interruption – cover for loss of income during periods when you cannot carry out business as usual due to an unexpected event. 
  • Building and/or Contents – cover to protect your café as you would your home.
