Coronavirus (Covid-19) – Update for Towergate customers


During the COVID-19 Coronavirus crisis, we want to reassure our customers and partners that we are following UK Government guidance,
and as a result our national offices are closed to both safeguard the health of our employees and our ability to look after our valued clients.
Where possible, our employees are working from home and we are still fully able to support with renewals, new cover requirements and
claims guidance and support. This includes giving our colleagues the ability to work from home or alternative locations,
which we hope will limit the disruption and enable you to speak to us for advice and support should you need it.
