Need to talk or get help following the weekend flooding?

Following this weekend’s significant weather event, I wanted to reach out and provide an update on what insurers are doing to ensure that our customers are also supported through these trying times.

If you’ve personally been impacted, please contact us, your Financial Adviser, or your insurer to see if there is anything they can do to support or assist you.

We are here to assist you

We are available either by email or by phone to assist you throughout these changing times.

Maintaining your insurance is essential

During this time, it is important to keep your insurance policies and reduce the risk to your financial security. If you need to adjust your cover, as your income has reduced, give us a call. We are happy to help.
