blip partners with BoB to provide insurance to tradespeople

blip, a small business insurance provider, has announced Band of Builders (BoB) as its charity partner, offering affordable insurance and support to its network of tradespeople from less than £10 a month.

blip is built on community, providing affordable, tailored and easy-to-understand insurance with a model where members share in the profits collectively. BoB, a registered charity helping members of the UK construction industry and their families battling illness or injury, was an obvious choice for a partner. blip and BoB share a common mission for the new partnership, which is removing the stress and worry in times of crisis for tradespeople and offering peace of mind when starting or running a business.

The partnership will see blip support BoB through charitable sponsorship and by providing blip members the opportunity to donate the value of up to 10% of their premium to BoB through its profit-share model.

Gary Ross, Founder and CEO of blip, says, “We are delighted to be partnering with BoB to deliver life-changing support to tradespeople going through tough times. They put real people first and that’s exactly what we do at blip.

“Growing up with family working in the trades, I know firsthand the toll it can take mentally and physically – blip and BoB are working to alleviate this pressure. We are supporting the people who keep our communities running by ensuring they have the protection they need and a community around them.”

Gavin Crane, CEO of BoB, says, “Teaming up with blip, who share our passion for giving back, marks a significant step forward in enhancing the well-being of our community. In the construction industry, when life poses challenges, decision-making can be difficult for small business owners. blip’s business toolkits provide practical templates and guidance, easing stress and enabling businesses to grow. This collaboration is a positive step in tackling the challenges faced by tradespeople, offering actionable support for our community members.”
