At Westfield, we know our centres are more than just shopping hubs. They are lifestyle destinations where people come to connect, share and inform.
We cultivate spaces that are inclusive and welcoming, which our communities are proud to call their own; and we contribute to the social wellbeing and cohesion of our local regions through a number of programs and services. It is through this commitment that we deliver our purpose of creating extraordinary places, connecting and enriching communities.
Westfield Local Heroes
Westfield Local Heroes is a community recognition and grants program, connecting and enriching local communities.
The community nominates and votes for the individuals who they believe promote social wellbeing and harmony in their communities, across one or more of the three social values of Family, Youth Opportunity and Inclusion. The affiliated organisation of every successful Westfield Local Hero receives a $10,000 grant to support their work, program or activities.
The program has closed for 2018, and we congratulate every one of our nominees and finalists, and recognise the important contribution they make to the local community.
Lovers of window shopping will be pleased to know that window browsing can be good for your health.
Westfield Carousel provides a safe environment which enables walkers to get active; rain, hail or shine. Walkers who are new to physical activity or are recovering from a health issue enjoy being able to walk on a smooth surface with no obstacles and are encouraged to walk at their own pace. Walkers have access to amenities as well as plenty of seating throughout the mall should you wish to have a rest.
The Westfield Walkers will meet at Jamaica Blue, located outside Target, and walk laps around the shopping centre every Monday morning at 8:30am.
Westfield community sites
We provide a dedicated space in all 40 Westfield centres in Australia and New Zealand for community-focused groups (i.e. not-for-profit sports groups, community groups, charities and welfare organisations) to connect with people in the local area. Priority is given to groups and activities that are relevant and valued to the local community. Contact us for more information.
We work closely with key local organisations, groups and individuals to discover, celebrate and contribute to those things that are relevant and meaningful to the local community. We also invite customer and community insights via face-to-face, phone and digital channels.
Contributing to our local communities
We provide a dedicated space in all Westfield centres for community-focused groups (i.e. not-for-profit sports groups, community groups, charities and welfare organisations) to connect with people in the local area.
And our staff are passionate about giving back and we support them to do this in a variety of ways through Workplace Giving and Volunteering. For more information on any of our programs or services, please contact us.
