Event Cancellation and Abandonment Insurance

This section provides compensation to a Scout Group or Unit for the loss of expenses resulting from the cancellation or abandonment of an event. The cancellation or abandonment must be beyond the control of the Group or Unit.

Unity is well aware of the amount of effort required to organise and stage events such as jamborees, gang shows, fetes and family days. In addition to the hard work, many events involve considerable financial outlay. This may include:

  • Payments for publicity;
  • Hire of marquees and other equipment;
  • Purchase of perishable goods such as foodstuffs;
  • Venue hire; and
  • Printing costs for tickets.

How would your Scout Group fare if the event or activity had to be cancelled or, once started, abandoned?

Some of your outgoings might be recoverable but much of it would not. Instead of a healthy return on the event, you could be facing a financial disaster!

Cancellation and Abandonment insurance offers the perfect safety net. At a stroke, you can protect your Scout Group from incurred financial loss due to such things as:

  • Event site unavailability;
  • Inclement weather;
  • Strikes; and
  • Fires.

Cover is provided on the basis that, when applying for cover, there are no circumstances known or suspected by your Group which are likely to result in a claim.

For Cancellation and Abandonment the cover must be requested at least 14 days before the beginning of the event.
