Community housing insurance

Our brokers know your sector inside and out. Let us arrange community housing insurance on your behalf.

What insurance might my community housing association need to consider?

Economic uncertainty and growing stakeholder scrutiny are pushing many social housing providers to cut costs. If you’re feeling the pinch, you might be exposed to greater risks than usual.

We strongly recommend you consider public liability and professional indemnity insurance to help address these growing concerns. And our expert brokers are happy to arrange both covers on your behalf.

Cover we can arrange

  • Choose from $5 million, $10 million or $20 million public liability cover limit 

    The limit of liability is the maximum amount that can be provided under the insurance policy.

  • Up to $20 million professional indemnity cover limit

    The limit of liability is the maximum amount that can be provided under the insurance policy.

  • Coverage Australia-wide

The answer depends on how often your business changes.

As a rule of thumb, we recommend you review your policy at least once a year. This will ensure your business’s current risk exposures are covered.

But major changes – like business growth, greater work complexity or expanded services – should always prompt an insurance review.

Some insurers need to know about certain changes in accordance with your duty of disclosure. If your business has changed recently, contact our team on 1300 369 808 or at to update your policy. 

A certificate of currency is proof that you hold a current insurance policy.  

Please contact us once you have paid for your policy – we will provide you with your certificate of currency in minutes.
