Why do Disability Service Providers need insurance?

Disability service providers do invaluable work in our community and often face difficulties in finding suitable coverage and advice for the services they provide. It is vital that you, and the work you do, is protected through the correct insurance and that all gaps in coverage are highlighted and explained to allow you to make decisions on services that you provide.

The nature of the sector involves unique elements of risk, which all need to be managed and mitigated. These include standard risks such as physical property from unforeseen events or safeguarding against negligence.
