Broker forums address child abuse inquiries

Broker forums address child abuse inquiries An Ansvar Insurance broker forum today will address the Victorian Parliamentary inquiry into the handling of child abuse by religious and other non-government organisations.

The Melbourne forum, one of five that are taking place across the country, is entitled Betrayal of Trust and will feature an address by Nick Wakeling, MP for Ferntree Gully, and committee member for the Victorian Parliamentary inquiry into the handling of the child abuse by religious and other non-government organisations.

Wakeling said:  “This is a highly topical issue, and one that carries significant responsibility for the insurance industry, both for the institutions they work with, and for those on the receiving end in those environments that are meant to offer safe and protective care at all times.”

“The topic at the Melbourne broker forum is directly related to the level of inquiry and interest from our customers and broker partners,” said Warren Hutcheon, CEO, Ansvar.

“We’re grateful for Nick Wakeling’s commitment of time for this important forum on an issue that is critical to the well-being of the vulnerable.  Ansvar’s specialist expertise in the care, community and faith sectors allows us to raise this issue to ensure we provide a greater understanding for our brokers dealing with their clients in these sectors.  It is incredibly important for Ansvar to help organisations protect those who are in their care."

Hutcheon said Ansvar’s broker events provide intermediaries and partners with the opportunity to hear about topical mainstream issues facing customers, and enable a collaborative approach to tackle challenges and issues.

The broker forums are scheduled nationally in all major centres including Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane.   Melbourne’s forum is focused on the Betrayal of Trust topic, and the remainder of the forums in the other centres will address Avoiding a Crisis Through Risk Management.
