A charity which helps children with behavioural problems could be forced to close because of a huge hike in insurance costs.
The Atlow Mill Centre in Derbyshire has been quoted a public liability premium of "£10,000 to £15,000", compared with an insurance bill of £2,000 for last year.
The charity, which has an annual turnover of £92,000, has been without cover for two weeks after previous insurers Tremwick decided to pull out of insuring organisations that deal with children.
A new group of children will arrive for a residential course later this month, and if affordable insurance hasn't been found by then, it will have to turn them away.
"The quote amounts to one-fifth of our income. They are effectively pricing us out of the market,
said chief executive Jean Bond.
Bond said that the charity could soon be forced to close.
