Available to all UK (inc Channel Islands and Isle of Man) resident a-n Arts Organiser members, the Creative Freelance Insurance Policy provides £5m Public & Products Liability Insurance and £1m Professional Indemnity Insurance for a wide range of freelance activities for a fixed price.

This insurance runs annually from 1st December and the price you pay depends on the date you obtain the cover.

Existing Policyholders - Renewing Your Cover For 2016 - 17

The renewal date of the policy is 1st December 2016 and Renewal application forms have now been posted to all current policyholders. If you have not received yours then please get in touch with us ASAP in order that we can arrange for a duplicate to be issued to you.

Any applications received after December 1st will be treated as a new application, which will have a detrimental effect on your Professional Indemnity cover as you need to maintain continuous cover in place to be insured for claims arising from work undertaken by you since your inception of cover under this policy. Therefore, if it is your intention to renew it is important that you do so prior to 30th November.

The deadline for existing policyholders to renew has now passed. If cover is required then please complete and submit a new 2015-16 application form.
