Welcome to Allied Westminster
Village Hall Insurance across the UK with our exclusive product VillageGuard.
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. Efficient and effective claims management is something take very seriously because ultimately that is what an insurance policy is all about.
With our bespoke VillageGuard, village hall insurance policy, and dedicated village hall claims handlers and support staff, over 95% of trustees put their trust in us by renewing each year. This is something we are very proud of, but never take for granted. Focusing on excellent customer service is our number one priority, it is the personality of our company, and we believe this is rewarded with customer retention.
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.

Discounted Multi-Page Valuation Report Solves Problem For Trustees
Allied Westminster has teamed up with a RICS surveyor to bring a new solution to the old problem of under-insured Village Halls and vulnerable Trustees!
At present, if Halls are under-insured then not only does it create problems at time of claim, but Village Hall Trustees can become personally liable for the uninsured losses. This problem can be avoided altogether if the Hall is insured for the correct sum, but Hall Committees are often unable to spend £500-£800 for a full onsite valuation so they can set their sums insured correctly.
Allied Westminster has been tackling this problem for some years and has just launched its new initiative – The Property Rebuild Assessment Report scheme. Under this, Halls can now receive a highly detailed valuation report showing appropriate sums for all assets – main building, outbuildings, tennis courts, car parks, walls, etc – allowing them to set sums insured with great precision.
The report is simple to request and quick to arrive. Better yet, it’s very inexpensive to VillageGuard® clients. It’s even subsidised for Halls that aren’t clients of VillageGuard, because Allied Westminster has a strong commitment to eradicating this problem for all Village Halls across the country. The valuation completely removes the problem of Trustee vulnerability for under-insured assets.
