About Towergate Insurance

Towergate is the UK’s largest independently owned insurance broker. 

‘We ensure that each customer has the right insurance to meet their individual needs, from caravan owners to care homes to international corporations. Our understanding of the communities we serve, together with our scale and breadth, allows us to work with our insurer partners to deliver the best cover.’

Towergate’s work with foster carers

‘Towergate provides home insurance specifically for foster families and having worked with The Fostering Network for more than five years, we understand that there’s more to insurance when you foster. 

‘We have developed a bespoke policy that covers both your fostered child’s possessions and you for any intentional damage or theft. Standard home insurance doesn’t always cover these and you will also usually need to notify your insurer each time a new child joins your family, something that we don’t require. You also won’t need to report a crime to make a claim.

‘We understand fostering and can help foster carers ensure they have the right insurance.’ 

It is with this in mind that Towergate have written a helpful guide about foster home insurance, including how it is different to standard home insurance, what the benefits of dedicated foster home insurance are and how you can get the best value for money. Read the guide.

What foster carers say about Towergate

‘The customer service representative was professional, informative and patient with me. She was thorough and explained everything clearly and precisely. I feel confident that I have taken out the appropriate insurance for my role as a foster carer.’
