Welcome to the latest issue of our Community Matters newsletter featuring topical articles for the community sector, including local councils, charities and not-for-profit organisations.

As the dark, drawn-out evenings and cold season finally set in, this edition includes an article featuring guidance on protecting your buildings during winter. Additionally, as winter arrives and the chance of snow increases, read our article on snow and ice-related slips.

Finally, with the winter season offering many opportunities for community engagement, we have produced an article discussing the occasions to leverage space within councils and community buildings for hiring out community premises for events.

You’ll find regular updates and helpful information from the underinsurance of community buildings to insurance considerations for events and much more in our news and insights section of our website.

Our Gallagher UK LinkedIn channel is also a great way to stay up to date with the latest news and insights so please follow us.
