Case Studies


Farmers, home owners and business people all have their story to tell

Because we have helped thousands of people in the South West with their insurance over the years, we have built up an inspiring collection of Member case studies, telling these fascinating stories.

You will find stories from Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset.

Dip into this selection of case studies and you will get a glimpse of the service Cornish Mutual provides to our insurance customers. You can read the stories or watch some of them on video.

If you would like to feature as a Cornish Mutual case study in future, please do get in touch with us.
