Fighting the rise of Countryside Crime

Rural Crime Report 2019

Looking after our Rural communities is central to what we do.

As the UK's leading rural insurer providing cover to three quarters of farms and rural businesses, we're in a unique position to understand the true cost of rural crime. 

Every year we gather our claims statistics to provide a detailed picture of the financial and social impact of rural crime. In 2018 the cost of rural crime in the UK reached its highest since 2011.
