Association of British Insurers

The Association of British Insurers is the leading trade association for insurers and providers of long term savings. Its 250 members include most household names and specialist providers. As a voice for the industry, the ABI also provides general consumer information on insurance, savings, products and services.

The UK insurance industry has a critical role in helping customers cope before, during and after a major flood. From providing guidance and information on the protection of assets, to assisting customers and their families through the confusion and distress in the immediate aftermath, to the long recovery and restoration process which may follow, the insurance industry is an integral part of major flood response.

The ABI’s website provides information on flooding, including this video for how to prepare for flooding, what you should do if your home is flooded.

In addition to this, ABI recently released their guide to resistant and resilient repair following a flood event which gives concise guidance on flood recovery procedures and key sources of further information. The document outlines the key steps that should be taken if your property has been flooded and gives clear information on how to prevent this from happening again in the future. This guidance document can be downloaded as a PDF below.
