Your Westfield Local Heroes 2019

Your votes are in! We are thrilled to announce our 120 Westfield Local Heroes for 2019. In March, our communities across Australia and New Zealand told us who their heroes were, and in July we invited them to vote for their preferred finalists from a very impressive shortlist. Now we have the honour of announcing the successful heroes and their affiliated organisations, all of whom will receive a grant of up to $10,000 to help them continue to grow their impact. In total, Westfield will be awarding 120 grants - totalling $1.2 million. 

We also want to congratulate and recognise all 240 finalists, whose work connects and enriches communities across Australia and New Zealand.

Discover the stories of your 2019 Westfield Local Heroes. These inspiring local leaders were nominated and voted for by the community and will now be awarded a $10,000 grant for each of their affiliated organisations to help their important work to grow.
