The charity making life better by water

Public Liability Insurance

Anyone organising an event on Canal & River Trust land must have their own Public Liability Insurance with a minimum indemnity of £10million.

This level has been set after careful consideration to ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone on our waterways. In certain circumstances where the event has low numbers and could be classed as low risk the Trust may consider £5 million liability cover to be sufficient. Each application/request will be considered on an individual basis. Please be aware this may also mean it takes slightly longer to process your application.

Please speak to us if you have any issues or questions.

*The Trust does reserve the right to request a minimum indemnity limit above £10m in exceptional circumstances'
