Insure items in your council home
How to insure furniture, carpets, clothes, jewellery and other belongings in your council home
Why you should think about insurance
We don't cover your household contents as part of your tenancy agreement.
So it’s a good idea to think about what a home contents insurance policy would cover for you. Then you can decide if you need one.
Contents insurance is designed to help protect your possessions. Even if you are careful, there is always a risk your belongings could be broken, damaged or stolen.
Contents insurance can help protect your possessions and could give you peace of mind.
