Home Contents Insurance

Have you ever thought about what would happen if you had a burglary? How would you replace your possessions if there was a fire in your home? Could you afford to replace all your belongings out of your own pocket?

Bron Afon manages and maintains your home but we cannot replace your belongings, household goods or contents if there is a fire or a burglary. This is why we encourage you to take out home contents insurance either through our special scheme or by arranging cover yourself.

By taking out cover through our scheme with Aviva you can cover your belongings for as little as 86p per week.

Susan Belcher's story...

Fire in tenants homeSusan Belcher from Cwmbran knows what the devastating effects of a fire can be. She lost almost everything when her home was wrecked by fire in December 2011 and her contents were not insured. She tells us her story:

"My six year-old son Thomas and I weren't at home at the time of the fire but some of my pets weren't so lucky. My poodle, Lily, who was 13 and my 20 year old parrot, Sydney, both died.

"This kind of experience does make you realise that personal possessions aren't everything - life is what's important - but I would advise everyone to get home contents insurance. Apart from a few photos, I couldn't save anything. It felt like 23 years of my life had gone up in flames."

The good news is that Susan has gone back to live at her home.

"The neighbours are great and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

"It's great to know that even though the world has changed, the community spirit in St Dials hasn't."
