Westpool is a Co-Operative Local Government Self Insurance Scheme

Excellence in risk management through Local Government partnerships

Established to help stabilise insurance premium costs achieve significant cost savings and long term benefits for member Councils through effective risk management.

The organisation was established in 1988 with six foundation councils from Western Sydney.  Parramatta joined in 2002 while Wollongong and Shellharbour councils are the most recent members to the Pool.  The nine member councils work together to manage their risk and secure all their insurance cover.  Financial contributions to the Pool are based on the relative size of each council and incorporate a proportion of underlying claims experience so as to reflect risk exposure.

Westpool is owned, governed and administered by elected and appointed delegates from each member council, with the assistance of professional staff and service providers.

Westpool members have a long term view of the advantages of pooling and seek to benefit through excellent risk management and prudent financial strategies.
