Our growth and success is a reflection of the relationships and trust we have cultivated and the strength of the brand we have built. As well as nurturing the success of our broker network, our agencies and our business partners, we are also invested in playing our part in supporting the wellbeing of our local communities and the environment in which we live.
At Steadfast, we see strength in diversity and believe that it’s our individual differences that make our business great. Not only do we promote a diverse and inclusive workplace, but we are proud to sponsor and champion initiatives which celebrate diversity and inclusion such as the Dive In Festival, Women in Insurance, and “Head over Heels” which celebrates and promotes female entrepreneurs and leaders.

Steadfast takes its responsibility seriously in ensuring the sustainability of our environment for future generations to come. Across our business we are reducing our environmental impact with recycling facilities and reducing the use of paper and other consumables as well as actively promoting environmental sustainability.
