LGIS supports members every day in managing their risks and handling the claims when there’s an incident. We have a helicopter view of what’s happening in the sector and are in a unique position to see the trends across the sector.
The WA Local Government Risk Forum has been developed using this unique perspective to build capacity within the sector to address current and emerging trends.
