Special Olympics GB appoints Gallagher as its insurance broker

Gallagher has become the insurance broker for Special Olympics GB, building on it becoming a platinum partner to the global Special Olympics movement in March 2020.

Special Olympics GB is part of the global Special Olympics movement. It is a non-profit organisation and the largest provider of year-round, sports coaching and athletic competitions for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

It currently operates more than 120 accredited clubs in England, Scotland and Wales, providing approximately 27,000 hour-long sporting sessions per year, delivered by a team of more than 4,000 volunteers.

Garry Hockey, manager in Gallagher’s charity practice, said: “We are proud to be building on our relationship with Special Olympics GB by being appointed broker - and look forward to supporting the organisation with its risk management and insurance requirements over the coming years, as it seeks to open more doors to inclusion in sport.”

Laura Baxter, interim chief operating officer, Special Olympics GB, said: “Gallagher has an outstanding reputation and their knowledge and understanding of not only the charity sector, but Special Olympics as a whole, gives us huge confidence we are working with the right partners.”
