Purpose-built Village Hall InsuranceHome
Welcome to VillageGuard®, the UK's most popular insurance policy for Village Halls.
We value the fact that more trustees trust us than any other village hall insurance provider. Price is important, but things happen after insurance is purchased, that’s when value matters most to our customers.
With our bespoke VillageGuard product and dedicated village hall claims handlers and support staff, over 95% of trustees put their trust in us by renewing each year.
Throughout the Covid-19 crisis we have remained fully resilient, and support each and every client with quotations, mid-term adjustments when needed, and claims support.
Apart from our back-office and administration team, we have 11 front-line support staff for Village Halls with a combined 164 years, and an average of 15 years policy management experience as of 2021.

VillageGuard® is available only from Allied Westminster and is underwritten by Aviva. It is designed by Village Hall people for Village Hall people, and contains everything needed to protect a Hall and its Trustees. It comes with many optional extras so it is flexible enough to provide protection for Halls of all types.
It typically provides substantial cost savings because it's the only Village Hall policy underwritten in favour of well-managed Halls in rural locations.
Other insurers will provide insurance for Village Halls but only within a policy that also covers higher-risk buildings which are not Village Halls and which are not in truly rural locations. Such buildings carry higher risks that must be loaded into their premiums. At Allied Westminster we don't believe that you should pay for risks that don't reflect the location of your Hall. VillageGuard® excludes these higher-risk buildings, meaning lower premiums for genuine Village Halls in rural locations.
Allied Westminster is a product innovator and a market leader in Village Hall insurance. Our VillageGuard® policy covers assets worth billions of pounds for thousands of Halls throughout the UK, and has been a major success since its launch in 2006.
Our clients benefit from a personalised service which allocates a dedicated claims handler to every claim, minimising delay and inconvenience.
