    Since joining Statewide Mutual, we’ve developed a valuable relationship that’s based on trust, collaboration and respect.

  • General Manager at Liverpool Plains Shire Council

    For me, history is important; Statewide exists because no else cared. The big players didn’t want to touch local government in the 1990s because we were seen as high risk. So we came together and created this cooperative to look after ourselves when no one else would.

    Statewide is different because we all own it, we all share in it and we look after each other. It’s about members, not profits.
