Bollington Insurance Brokers Limited is delighted to announce their recent appointment as the new preferred insurance provider for the Age England Association.
The Age England Association is a membership body for all the organisations working in partnership with Age UK. Age UK was formed following a merger between Age Concern England and Help the Aged. Representing a membership base of over 300 independent charities with a combined turnover of around £170 million, the Age England Association members offer a wide range of vital services for older people including information and advice, day services, handy person services and befriending schemes to name a few.
Following the above changes, earlier this year the Age England Association took the decision to review their preferred insurance provider and carried out a full tender process. With a dedicated care and charity team already in place; 10 years experience in the care, charity and not for profit sectors; strong relationships with insurers to create an exclusive scheme for members and a nationwide network of highly experienced charity account managers, Bollington won the contract.
John Briers, Chair of the Age England Association said ‘We are delighted about our recent appointment of Bollington Insurance Brokers as our preferred insurance provider. This followed a robust tendering process where we considered several different providers and we believe that the Bollington offering could provide a significant benefit for Age England Association members. Because they already insure a number of our members and have a strong understanding of the sector, Bollington were the natural choice.”
The exclusive scheme underwritten by a panel of insurers has the benefit of the widest covers available to the sector, in-house delegated authority for quick quotation turnaround and a number of exclusive features including access to a bespoke online health and safety service.
Paul Moors, Chairman for Bollington commented; ‘Our recent tender win to be the preferred insurance provider to the Age England Association gives me tremendous satisfaction that our hard work and dedication to the care and charity sector has been recognised. We offer insurances to charity and not for profit sectors through our specialist Care Division so this is a great fit for our organisation. We are looking forward to working together.’
