Insurance for member groups

Applications accepted at the discretion of Environment Victoria upon the advice of our insurance broker and policy providers. Applications will be processed and sent to our insurer at set points through out the year as follow:

  • Applications for the annual renewal, received by Wednesday 17 July 2024 will be processed for the 28 August 2024 renewal.
  • Late applications received after 17 July, and by 31 October, will be processed by the end of November.

The current cover includes:

  1. Public and product liability insurance ($20 million Worldwide, excluding USA and Canada). This may be useful for groups booking or hiring public spaces, which sometimes requires insurance.
  2. Volunteers accident insurance. This may be useful for groups doing ‘on-ground’ environmental work, which may include tree planting, face painting, bush walking and associated travel.

Groups must be financial members of Environment Victoria to receive the insurance coverage. To sign up or renew your membership, click here >>

To cover the costs equitably, we are operating a tiered fee system:

Number of Members & Volunteers Fee
0 – 40 $360
41 – 200 $520
201 and above $770

In most cases, joining Environment Victoria’s coverage will be much cheaper than getting separate coverage for your group.
