- 1834 – Now
Ancient Order of Foresters Friendly Society established
The Ancient Order of Foresters Friendly Society was established in its present form in 1834, although it had evolved from a much earlier society.
Guernsey branch opens
Its first branch was opened in Guernsey in 1866 and the Society has traded continuously in the Island since that date.
Foresters Healthcare, a purely local scheme operated by the Guernsey Branch for the benefit of residents of Guernsey and Alderney, has a long and successful trading record serving the community for over 148 years.
Using the experience gained over these years, the Society has developed health insurance plans tailored to the needs of the residents of Guernsey and Alderney which are very competitively priced and provide comprehensive cover to compliment, not duplicate, the services provided by the Guernsey Social Security Authority and the Islands’ Health Authorities. Working closely with the medical practices in Guernsey and Alderney, the schemes will continuously evolve to ensure they remain relevant to residents and priced competitively to remain attractive.
