Aon has renewed its partnership with Volunteering Australia for a further three years, as the global broker signs on as National Volunteer Week’s exclusive sponsor.
Volunteering Australia CEO Adrienne Picone said she was proud that the supporting partnership has already spanned more than two decades, and was looking forward to continue working with the global insurance broker to keep Australian volunteers safe.
“Insurance is a vital component of safe and effective volunteering,” Picone said. “As the approved insurance provider for Volunteering Australia, Aon understands the value of volunteering and that organising insurance can be a daunting experience for a Volunteer Involving Organisation. Aon’s Volunteering Australia Resource Centre delivers educational material and tools as well as general advice to ensure Volunteer Involving Organisations have the right insurance to protect their volunteers.”
Picone said that as National Volunteer Week’s exclusive sponsor, Aon will help grow this important celebration, which will be held on May 20-26, to acknowledge the generous contribution of Australian volunteers.
“Working with Aon on National Volunteer Week will also allow more volunteering-involving organisations to learn about Aon and how their expertise in the volunteer space can assist them to ensure their volunteer programs are safe,” Picone said. “Aon’s Volunteers Vital Pack, for example, aims to meet the needs of the volunteering sector by offering an insurance package designed for the volunteering sector.”
Gavin Deadman, Aon’s not-for-profit client director, welcomed the long-term relationship with Volunteering Australia.
“Volunteering is the life blood of the Australian community and stretches across every sector of our society,” Deadman said. “Aon is proud to support Australia’s hard working and dedicated volunteers by providing insurance solutions for Volunteer Involving Organisations.”
