Our vision is for MAV WorkCare to be the workers’ compensation provider of choice to Victoria’s local government sector.

The MAV WorkCare scheme was established in 2017 to provide Victorian local government access to sector specific, tailored services and support.

We are committed to working with our members to improve workplace health, safety, wellbeing and quality of life outcomes for members’ employees experiencing workplace injury or illness.

Under our mutual model, capital is reinvested back into the scheme to benefit our members.

The MAV WorkCare scheme currently has 30 member organisations across Victoria.
