About us

We’re a mutual organisation that has been helping Australians thrive for more than 175 years in the areas of Health, Wealth and Living. 

Established in response to unmet community needs in 1840, the modern Australian Unity still aims to identify and help solve the health and financial needs of its members, customers and broader community.

The people and organisation that formed Australian Unity were energetic and effective advocates for change and better government policy. In the 1940s the organisation assisted soldiers returning from the battlefield to access cheap housing for their families. In the 1970s members lobbied for the mandatory use of seatbelts in Victoria.

Australian Unity continues in this vein today and has recently advocated on behalf of members in matters such as navigating the complexity of the aged care system, identifying wastage in the Australian healthcare system and working through the new legislation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
