Why might you need Volunteer Personal Accident Insurance?
Does your Not For Profit work with volunteers in your day-to-day activities? Or even at events? Volunteers are a vital resource for many organisations, especially for NFPs. Should accidental injury or death occur for one of your volunteers, not only will this affect the wellbeing of the volunteer, but your organisation may also be liable for the costs associated with the injury or death. This is why we have worked with insurers to create a comprehensive and affordable, Volunteer Personal Accident (VPA) insurance cover to protect your organisation and your volunteers, should a volunteer sustain injury or death whilst performing their duties.
The Volunteer Personal Accident Insurance we arrange can be purchased by an organisation for the benefit of its volunteers. Plus, unique to Aon, cover may be arranged to protect volunteers of any age, so long as they can take direction and work independently and this is stated in the policy schedule.

As a Not For Profit you are exposed to several risks and it is likely you will need to apply for insurance covers in addition to volunteer personal accident. For example, other relevant insurances may include public liability, association liability and property insurance.

Comprehensive motor vehicle cover provides cover for damage to vehicles that are owned, hired, borrowed or used by your organisation.
The policy also offers Third Party Liability coverage.
As a Not-for-profit organisation, you may store a lot of personal information on your systems. A cyber attack on your organisation may result in unauthorised release of that information. Standard insurance cover such as Public Liability and Professional Indemnity may not protect you in the event of a cyber attack, and as such the financial implications for your organisation could be very significant.
In response, Aon has worked with our cyber risk experts to develop a comprehensive and competitively priced insurance cover that protects your Not-for-profit.

Where does the cover Aon arranges extend to in Australia?
Your coverage can extend to all states and territories across the country. So, regardless of where you live or operate from in Australia, you can get covered through Aon.
In arranging certain NFP policies, Aon has binder agreements with relevant insurers under which Aon is authorised to commit such insurers to providing cover without reference to them. When acting under a binder we will be acting under an authority given to Aon by the insurer and will be effecting the insurance contract as agent of the insurer and not as your agent. Our binder arrangements with insurers are such that we remain your agent in the handling of any claim.
