Insurance for Landcare Groups

For a number of years one of the key things Landcare groups have asked for is cost effective insurance that provides adequate protection for group members.  Landcare NSW are now able to deliver on that need with the new Membership & Insurance Program.

Also, for a number of years one of the key things governments at all levels, investors and partner organisations have asked for is accurate information about Landcare in NSW, the number of groups and volunteers involved – the army on the ground.  The new Membership and Insurance program is one of the ways that Landcare NSW can deliver on this need.

Visit the Landcare NSW Membership & Insurance portal to get an on-line quote for your insurance requirements, progress to pay for your membership and policy, and then be able to access your membership certificate and certificates of currency whenever you need them with your group log-in.

Groups "Tell their Stories"

Under the Local Landcare Coordinator initiative, one of the products has been the development of a case study template that allows groups to “tell their story”.  The feature is available for all groups who have a Gateway page – simply log in and choose add new case study.  It’s a great way to produce a summary report on any activity or project your group has done – it is visible as a web page view, or can be downloaded into a PDF format that can be used as a flyer, inserted in a report, or even blown up for use as a poster.

In completing case studies you are letting everyone know the great range of things that groups do – and are adding to an online library of activities that allows groups and individuals to Share Learn and Connect. We do hope you take the opportunity to tell your story by submitting a case study or two.  Go to http://www.landcare.nsw.gov.au/help/how-to/case-studies-on-the-gateway for instructions, and contact your local Landcare Coordinator who can help.  When you submit  your case study it will be reviewed and once endorsed will be visible.  Check out the case studies that have been completed so far.
