The Mutual will work methodically and collaboratively with its members to reduce losses from claims and therefore, over time, the cost of cover. Information will be shared so that members can see how their cost of cover relates to their claims and to understand the drivers of the risks which turn into claims. The Mutual will draw on the LGA’s extensive expertise and experience to share insights for particular professions and services as well as issues affecting councils as a whole. It will draw on sector expertise in children’s services, highways, adult social care, education and property management to consider changes in legislation, policy and practice which can help (or could hinder) effective risk management, and identify new or emerging risks.
The Mutual will draw on the Local Government Association’s extensive expertise and experience to share insights for particular professions and services as well as issues affecting local authorities and help identify new and emerging risks.
