Insurance

All Forest School activity must be carried out with the appropriate insurance in place. Insurance continues to be an issue for many members. Insurance cover varies depending on the circumstances of your setting— so there is no hard and fast rule for everyone. The IFSA suggests you contact brokers and explain your particular circumstances to them in order to get a quote.

We hope to make more progress on this issue in 2019. Many members have had success through O Driscoll O Neil insurance brokers at http://www.odon.ie/. Make sure to ask for Kathryn Reddy as she is familiar with  the needs of Forest School practitioners. BHP insurance provide cover for IFSA. Contact amcardle@bhpinsurance.ie.  Kidd Insurance and Campions and www.ccc3.co.uk/  have also provided insurance to some of our members.
