Get covered today!
Many people think it's not worth paying for contents insurance - until they need it of course...
If you're a council tenant, you can join our great value scheme. Protect your belongings in your home against loss or damage, theft, fire and flood - for much less than you think.
Premiums start from as little as 29p a week for standard cover.
The minimum value of possessions you can insure for is £4,000 and can extend up to £40,000 for which a higher premium is charged.
Extended accidental damage and optional extensions - such as personal possessions (cover away from the home), wheelchairs/mobility scooters, hearing aids and buildings cover for garages and greenhouses - are all available for an additional premium.
You can pay your premiums when you pay your rent. It couldn't be simpler!
Applying is easy

North West Leicestershire District Council does not automatically insure your home contents. This is your responsibility! If you suffered a burst water pipe, damage by fire or even burglary, you will not receive any financial help from us with repairs or replacement of your personal belongings - unless you have taken out tenant's contents insurance.
