When organising a fundraising event, you are responsible for making sure it poses no risk to others, therefore, you will need to carry out the appropriate risk assessments and consider whether or not you need insurance. In most cases, for public and/or hazardous events, you may need public liability cover in place. For private events this may not be necessary. Please seek advice if you are unsure. For more information you can contact the Fundraising Support Centre on 0300 1000 200 or by email at email@example.com|.
