Good afternoon, welcome to just answer. I am a solicitor and I have reviewed your question for you. I am very sorry to hear of your circumstances. Regrettably insurances are contracts and therefore insurers can choose who to contract with and if they believe there is high risk they would not be made to insure. If you already  had insurance and that insurer is refusing to renew then you could possibly say they are discriminating based on age and you could escalate to the Financial Ombudsman. Any clarification do not hesitate to send your message. All the best.
