Why does your voluntary organisation need insurance?
NFP organisations can be exposed to a number of risks. It’s important that you are adequately covered for these, should the worst happen and a claim be made against you or your organisation. Some of these risks, which are all covered by Aon insurance include; Public Liability, Protector/Association liability, Property insurance and owned and non-owned motor vehicle insurance. For more information about the 6 common covers NFP organisations need, check out our Pieces of the Puzzle flyer or call our NFP team on 1800 123 266.
Why does your organisation need cover for volunteers?
Volunteer insurance is one way a NFP organisation protects itself, its volunteers, paid staff, management committee, clients and customers against risk.
The Work Health & Safety legislation requires organisations to organise personal accident and public liability insurance on behalf of their volunteer, it’s not the duty of the volunteer. Aon offer a comprehensive, cost competitive cover for this, that you can quickly and easily buy online though their Volunteer Personal Accident page.
Volunteer involving organisations should also reduce risk to its staff, clients and customers through proper health, safety, training and management practices and document procedures.
