Prices start from £2.65 a fortnight for tenants aged under 60 for a £12,000 sum insured and from just £1.36 a fortnight for a £9,000 sum insured if you are aged 60 or over.
We encourage all Council tenants to take out insurance to protect your furniture, belongings and decorations against fire, theft, water damage and other risks.

By paying extra, you can include
- full accidental damage cover within the home
- personal possessions cover - including mobiles - anywhere in the UK
- wheelchairs and hearing aids
- garden hut, garage and greenhouse structures.
There's also a handy checklist in the application pack which will help you work out how much insurance cover you need.
