2023 Insurance Update

2023 Insurance Update

Each year on the 31 March Scouts Queensland renews its insurance policies, following which insurance invoices are sent to formations. In 2023 the renewal was particularly challenging as we have sought to minimise cost increases as well as minimise impacts of insurers exiting the youth sector and managing risks around a hardening insurance market.

This has resulted in some changes in our insurance policies. 

To assist in informing leaders, three webinars sessions were held with the Chief Commissioner, General Manager and Manager, Facilities and Risk, discussing the Scouts Queensland insurance policies and the changes for 2023. 
Tuesday, 2 May @ 7pm
Thursday, 4 May @ 3pm
Tuesday,  9 May @7pm
For any leader who was unable to attend, or who wishes to revise the material shared, a copy of the presentation can be downloaded below.

Any additional questions should be directed risk@scoutsqld.com.au
