Disability Equality Scotland is here to support you and your Access Panel in whatever way we can.  We agree with Access Panels that they should be as visible as possible in the local community.  That’s why we are always on the lookout for things that will help Panels achieve their goals.  Insurance is important because no one can predict the future.  If something went

Access Panel Insurance Package

Disability Equality Scotland have secured a range of insurances.  All Access Panels will be covered and will help Panels grow and develop.  The insurances will also protect the Access Panel network

From now on, all Access Panels will be covered under Disability Equality Scotland through their membership with the organisation.  The insurances are:

  • Professional Indemnity – protecting against wrong advice.
  • Public Liability: This is to protect the panel against claims for injury whilst on the premises, etc.
  • Employers’ Liability – protecting against claims from employees (eg unfair dismissal, accidents, etc).

There are no forms to fill in.  You are automatically covered.  Just contact Ian at the Disability Equality Scotland office and he will provide you with all the relevant paperwork.
