About our public liability insurance

Our Membership PLUS offer includes £10 million in public liability insurance, designed for authors who perform, visit schools, run workshops, or take part in other public-facing work.

Our public liability insurance policy is provided by Hencilla, who also run similar plans for the Musician’s Union, Equity, BECTU and the Incorporated Society of Musicians. After upgrading to Membership Plus, you will receive the cover confirmation via email within 72 hours.

Please note: Your PLI cover runs in line with your membership year so if you are due to renew your membership on the first of next month or soon thereafter, please contact us before upgrading, either via email at [email protected] or calling our membership team on 0207 373 6642.

Personal service companies

In addition to covering freelance members, the policy can also cover the ‘personal service company’ of an insured member. This means that you still still be covered if you operate through a limited company where you are the sole director and employee, with the exception of another family member undertaking clerical and administrative duties only.
