If you're newly diagnosed, like many of our clients you might be scouring the internet to learn everything you can about your status.

If your newly diagnosed HIV positive there are a lot of good services available online and offline for you to access.

The good news is that with the advances in medical treatments, people with HIV can live long and healthy lives if you look after yourself. With good information and support, you can live well, have sex, have a career and have children.

Support for Straight People

  • For more information and contacts for heterosexual people with HIV, their partners and family in New South Wales you might like to visit Pozhet.
  • For people living in Victoria you might like to visit Straight arrows.

Support for LGBTQIA+ People

  • For more information and contacts for LGBT people with HIV, their partners and family ACON runs newly diagnosed workshops and each state has its own support service.
  • The peak body in Australia is the Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations

Support for everyone

From talking with our clients the common themes to getting back on track we've found are  

  • Connect with a good doctor
  • Get up-to-date information
  • Find services that can speak your language
  • Access social workers or counsellors from the health clinics
  • Get organised and get your life insurance in place and get on living

So where do we at Unusual Risks Insured fit in?

We help people with well-managed HIV or diabetes get their life insurance sorted in a discrete and confidential way. (We also help medical professionals and emergency workers who are at risk of sharps injuries and NSI's too so we know our stuff).

All our clients are living interesting and vibrant lives and life insurance is just a normal part of living a bigger life. When you've started treatments and your viral load is heading towards undetectable, we're here to help you get your life insurance organised if that's something you want in your life.

If you run a business, have a family (or maybe you're about to start one) or perhaps you have someone significant by your side, we're here to help with conversations about what's possible and to walk you through that next financial step.

For us, it's about helping people return to normal and get on with living by protecting you and your future financially.

Get in touch for a confidential chat, send us an email  or take one of our online Anonymous Pre-assessments to find out what's possible for you.

About Us

Unusual Risks Insured provides support to those people who big insurance companies leave behind. We believe in giving every person the power to use life insurance products to protect & provide for their loved ones, their businesses, and their legacy — free from barriers of stigma and discrimination.

We know, as an LGBTQIA+ person (or someone who goes without labels entirely), you probably have specific financial advice, life insurance, and privacy needs.

  • We're committed to serving the LGBTQIA+ Community and its Allies.
  • For us, it's about change leadership and #AdviceEquality.

Why not make us part of your story, so if the unexpected happens to you or whoever is family to you, you'll have a backup plan in place to help you financially recover and life can still get better for somebody you love.
