HOME INSURANCE THAT HELPS THE HOMELESS
We are proud to announce the second of our ‘INSURANCES WITH A CAUSE’ .. and this is Household Insurance with the participating charity being BEAM.
Surewise, facilitated by Disability Talk, has unveiled its new Home Insurance offering in partnership with social enterprise Beam. For every policy sold, a significant donation will be made to build brighter futures for people experiencing homelessness.
Launched in 2017, Beam is a crowdfunding platform that supports homeless people into stable jobs and homes. Through Beam, homeless people can raise money for job training, rental deposits and more, to remove the financial barriers that stand in their way. 100% of donations go to the end cause.
Hanna was homeless but is now working as a beautician.
Each homeless person is given a dedicated Beam caseworker, who helps them develop a career plan based on their unique strengths and interest, and provides one to one support. Members of the public can follow each beneficiary on their journey out of homelessness and leave messages of support to spur them on.
Through this partnership of insurance and charity 7.50% OF EACH YEAR’S PREMIUM will be donated to Beam allowing them to support homeless people.
Surewise’s Home Insurance policies are underwritten by SAGIC (Salvation Army General Insurance Corporation) who are the only Insurance Company owned by a charity.
Alex Stephany, Founder and CEO of Beam, said; “Every time someone purchases Home Insurance through Surewise, they are directly supporting a homeless person for the long-term. It’s great to see insurance firms building social impact into their DNA and we hope this is a trend that will continue.”
Stuart Bensusan, a director of Surewise said; “Beam is a fantastic platform, the whole team at Surewise is looking forward to working with them. Providing such a brilliant social enterprise that helps people learn new skills and get back on their feet is something we all admire and are delighted to support.”
