NAKMAS/HISCOX civil liability insurance
NAKMAS' civil liability insurance for £10 million pounds level, is considered by the legal and insurance industry to be the best available within the United Kingdom.
The policy is not sold separately and is included as part of the club/group affiliation to NAKMAS.
Please note: It does not provide legal expenses to bring legal action against someone. It does,however, protect the club, instructor and officials for legal action being brought against them.
A legal expenses insurance can be brought separately to which NAKMAS can facilitate.

The appointment of club/group welfare officers
Following announcements over the past couple of months about the Welfare Officer role, please note that as from 1 September 2015, the Welfare Officer can no longer be related or reside at the same address as the Chief Instructor. In the event, for smaller clubs, that you are unable to find someone suitable to take on the role, the NAKMAS Lead Welfare Officer can investigate any incidents/complaints directly, which will mean visits and phone calls to the club while the investigation takes place. This is a last resort solution.
Please ensure Affiliation Application forms used are dated July 2015, and destroy all older copies.
