Insurance brokerage, risk management and consulting company Gallagher has been selected as the insurance broker for Special Olympics GB.

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

Founded in 1978, the organisation has over 120 accredited clubs in England, Scotland and Wales. It is said to host nearly 27,000 hour-long sporting sessions every year, with the help of over 4,000 volunteers.

Special Olympics GB said that it selected Gallagher because of the insurer’s understanding of the organisation’s strategic goals as well as the risk and insurance requirements.

The appointment follows Gallagher’s multi-year partnership with Special Olympics to serve as its Platinum Partner.

Special Olympics GB interim COO Laura Baxter said: “We are absolutely delighted to be working with Gallagher moving forward.  This continues Special Olympics GB’s ambition of working with the best-in-class to manage risk and governance.
