Ansvar Provides Tailored Insurance for Disability Care
It goes without saying that disability centres, carers and support workers provide essential care that allows their clients to achieve a happier, more productive day-to-day routine, and a more fulfilling lifestyle.
From assisting with tasks like shopping and running errands to encouraging involvement in group activities and pursuing hobbies, clients place their trust in disability care professionals.
If you are a disability support worker or represent an organisation that employs disability care providers, Professional Indemnity & Public Liability Insurance is of the utmost importance. It protects you from the risks you may be exposed to while carrying out your job or service.
Should someone make a Professional Indemnity or Public Liability claim against you, this insurance is designed to pay compensation to the third party to protect your organisation from a substantial monetary loss.
