I didn't set up insurance before I left, what are my options?

For my third year abroad I am doing a placement with the British Council, teaching English in France. I tried to sort out year abroad insurance before I left but I kept finding issues with the policies and eventually time ran out. Now I'm here, all the UK year abroad insurance providers won't insure me, since you have to set it up before you go, I have basic medical cover with my work but not for travelling etc. I also want to cover my valuables, cameras, laptop against damage, theft etc. Does anyone know any way I can be covered besides taking out individual travel and gadget insurance here in France? Thanks!
