Birmingham broker MCIS has launched a scheme for organisations that provide home care and support.

MCIS, which specialises in the charity and care sector, said the scheme was available to brokers.

It said: "In recent years there has been significant growth in the number of organisations providing care and support to people in their own homes, although the options for insurance brokers to place the correct cover has been limited."

The scheme, which is underwritten by Allianz Cornhill, can accommodate all sizes of organisation and activities, ranging from basic home help services to nursing care in the home.
