Insurer Liberty Mutual has launched a new safeguarding product designed for organisations that work with children.
The company created Liberty Safeguarding to help organisations minimise risks to children by assessing their operations. It also provides them with resources to help raise safeguarding standards.
The new product combines traditional insurance protection with various risk management tools and frameworks to protect children.
It can cover a wide range of insurance needs including property, civil liability and crisis containment. It also includes access to specialist research and resources, a charity helpline, counselling services and safeguarding training.
Liberty Safeguarding is available to all sectors that deal with minors including residential children’s homes, sports organisations, youth groups and foster care providers.
“We believe our unique approach to safeguarding will help to make children’s lives safer,” said Nick Mortimer, head of liability lines at Liberty Mutual.
The insurer unveiled its latest product in cooperation with leading children’s charity NSPCC, which estimates that child abuse costs the society £3.2 billion a year.
