Ansvar retains International Network of Churches contract for 2015
February 11th, 2015


Melbourne, 11 February, 2015 – Ansvar Insurance, Australia’s leading insurance provider for the care, community, education, faith and heritage sectors, today announced that the International Network of Churches (INC) has renewed its national insurance contract. Previously known as the Christian Outreach Church, this contract represents one of Ansvar’s leading faith accounts.

This marks the sixth consecutive year that INC has chosen Ansvar for the majority of their insurance needs. The INC facilitates numerous key programs such as Global Care, a social justice and disaster relief program, and ‘Red Frogs’, the iconic chaplaincy and support network all of which are covered by Ansvar’s specialist insurance solutions.

“The longevity of the partnership between Ansvar and INC is important to us. Ansvar adds genuine value to our organisation with their accumulated years of knowledge of the faith sector and clearly understand the granularity and nuances of our needs. Our partnership with Ansvar goes beyond the dollar value of the contract; their value proposition is unmatched in this sector,” said Michael Farbridge, Liaison Officer, INC.

Michael Farbridge noted the direct relationship with Ansvar has been very positive.  “We needed someone that understood not only us, but also our key partners. In particular, the Red Frogs program is an integral element to the contract. Red Frogs provides direct relief from alcohol and drug related issues, as well as helping young adults and teenagers enjoy their school break in safe and positive environments. Ansvar has shown a great sense of community understanding when it comes to risk mitigation and this has been of great value to our organisation,” he said.

Warren Hutcheon, CEO Ansvar, said “Our position as a leader in the faith sector is one we will continue to defend and grow from strength to strength. As one of the five sectors that sets Ansvar apart from the rest of the market, the renewal with INC is a testament to the team both at INC and Ansvar. I am proud our enduring relationship has proven itself over time.”

“With the number of programs INC is involved in, both at a domestic and international level, the organisation is able to take advantage of the wide range of services Ansvar offers in the faith sector,” said Warren.
