Residents Associations, Neighbourhood Watch groups and other well-meaning community volunteer groups often fulfil a vital function in local communities. By taking active pride and interest in their neighbourhoods, they provide a valuable service to their neighbours and contribute to making the locality a pleasant and close-knit place to live.
Unfortunately, despite the voluntary nature of such organisations, by organising or participating in such a group, you may be exposing yourself legally. You can be held personally liable for actions undertaken during the course of your volunteer duties and responsibilities. Resident Associations Insurance policies provide specialist cover for these types of group. Typically this comprises legal defence cover against any allegations brought about against volunteers. This generally includes public liability, discrimination, dishonesty, “wrongful acts”, slander, libel, and other errors or omissions that may occur in the course of performing RA duties.
