We are here to help

RACQ understands our members/customers may experience vulnerability at some point in their lives and may require special help or care. We recognise that vulnerability is a state and not a trait, and, just as people are different, so are their needs and circumstances.

Our commitment

RACQ is committed to identifying and supporting members/customers who are experiencing vulnerability. We will provide an extra level of care, compassion, and sensitivity when engaging with members/customers in their time of need.

How does it work and how can we help?

We encourage our members/customers experiencing vulnerability to tell us about their circumstances as quickly as possible, so we can work with them to identify how we can best support them. Where we recognise a member/customer is in vulnerable circumstances, we will engage with them with sensitivity, dignity, respect, and compassion. Once we are in a position to understand their needs, we will work with them to provide the appropriate levels of care and support, which may require an escalation to a specialised support team, or provide them with information on additional support services where their requirements exceed our ability to support them. 

Family and domestic violence

RACQ recognises the safety of those experiencing family or domestic violence is paramount, and that it takes courage to talk openly about your situation. RACQ has deployed specialised training to its employees so we can recognise the signs of family and/or domestic violence and we are committed to having a conversation with you about how we can support you during these difficult times. We’ll ensure your privacy is protected, make certain you are supported in a sensitive and compassionate way, and arrange access to financial hardship assistance if necessary.
