Build Back Better

The world's first insurance scheme to help householders after a flood.

Build Back Better

Build Back Better enables flood victims to repair their homes with flood resilience and resistance measures

Launched by Flood Re, the scheme allows people, through participating insurers, to claim up to £10,000 for flood resilience over and above the cost of work to repair damage caused by a flood.

A joint initiative between the UK insurance industry and the UK Government

NFU Mutual, Aviva, Ageas, Lloyds Banking Group and LV= General Insurance will be the first to join the Build Back Better scheme.

Build Back Better in Bewdley

Paul smith and his family live in a grade 2 listed property in Stourport Road Bewdley which has had three major flood events in two years. In 2020 there was 14 inches of dirty water in the property and they were out of the property for over a year.

By “building back better” using recoverability and resistance PFR measures, in February 2022, following three days of an equivalent flood (700mm of flood water at front door), Paul was back home watching TV.
