No hero should go unsung

We all know those wonderful people who go above and beyond to make our community a better place. Now is the time to shine the spotlight on them.

Westfield Local Heroes are nominated and voted for by their communities, with three finalists per Westfield centre each awarded a $10,000 grant for their affiliated organisation to support their work and programs.


Westfield Local Heroes discovers and celebrates individuals who promote social wellbeing and/or harmony in our communities through their work, programs or activities, across one or more of the three social values of Family, Youth Opportunity and Inclusion.

Nominations close 8 April 4pm AEST

All nominations will be assessed to create a shortlist of six finalists per Westfield centre. The community will then be invited to cast their votes. The three Westfield Local Heroes per centre (120 in total across Australia and New Zealand) will be awarded a $10,000 grant each to support their affiliated organisation’s work and programs to grow and thrive.


The program is open to people in all sectors, including business, government, education, sports, welfare, community and not-for-profit.


So don’t let your local hero go unsung. Nominations for the 2019 Westfield Local Heroes program are now open. Find all the information here:
