What is this about?
This strategy will support the Victorian community to understand the importance of home and contents insurance as a key pillar of their financial resilience and emergency preparedness. It identifies five actions, focusing on home and contents insurance to increase Victorians’ financial resilience to emergencies.
The actions include a public communication campaign, developing accessible insurance information, engaging directly with the community through emergency preparedness and financial resilience workshops and gaining a greater understanding of the structural barriers to home and contents insurance for low to middle income households.
