Who we are

Passionate about insuring every charity & living generously.

Access is an ethically driven, independent broker serving third sector organisations.

Our mission is to help all types of charities and not-for-profits manage their risks by giving specialist advice and designing bespoke insurance policies.

We are a business built on social enterprise principles and values. Our culture embodies generosity in serving and giving to charitable causes. One of our key motivations for growth is to positively impact the sector through philanthropy.

Proudly part of the Benefact Group

As of January 2024, Access Insurance is part of the Benefact Group, owned by the Benefact Trust. The Group is an international family of financial service businesses with deep charity expertise in insurance, broking and investment management.

Whilst part of the wider Group, Access will continue to provide an independent service. Our expert advisers will work with you to create bespoke policies that meet your needs across our available market of 40+ insurers.

Charity-specialist broking

We help all types of charities with their insurance, from the smallest to the largest, working hard to deliver great customer service, quality advice and a policy that protects each charity’s unique activities and assets. We regularly ask for feedback so that we can apply changes that will improve the customer journey. You can see our most recent reviews here.

When an organisation appoints us as their broker, they quickly notice what sets us apart: an excellent level of knowledge, skill and professionalism delivered in a friendly, helpful manner. This approach to how we do business and our commitment to excellence demonstrated by our Chartered status, are why thousands of organisations trust us to act for them.

What being Chartered means for you

The Chartered Institute of Insurance awards the Chartered status to brokers who publicly commit to professional and high-quality service standards, are ethically driven, knowledgeable and provide competent advice based wholly on your needs and requirements.
