UK should make insurance more available to reformed offenders

We were referenced in an article in the Insurance Journal.

Our view is that the insurance industry is failing reformed offenders who are seeking entry to basic financial security. Writing in the Chartered Insurance Institute’s (CII) publication Thinkpiece, we argued that blanket policies, confusing laws and an overall lack of knowledge among both the consumers and industry contribute to a system that blocks people trying to go ‘straight’ from getting the very thing they need most to reintegrate into society: insurance.

We put forward what we believe are workable solutions that could help both industry and the consumer and claims that by opening access to insurance to a market historically assumed as being too risky, insurers could make a fundamental impact on reducing crime while retaining a commercial approach.
