Westfield Local Heroes are positive community role models who work in a diverse range of sectors and with a varied degree of experience. They include environmentalists, innovators, community volunteers and leaders, welfare service providers, first responders, essential workers, health and medical experts, educators, social entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs.
Each year we recognise and celebrate over 120 Westfield Local Heroes who make a positive impact to their local community or environment providing over $1.2 million in community grants.
Next phase of the program
If you have been nominated in the program and have any questions, contact us at [email protected].
All nominations are currently being assessed to create a shortlist of 6 finalists per Westfield Centre. The community will then be invited to cast their vote from August 10.
We understand there is a long time between nominations and voting, but please bear with us as we discover the hundreds of amazing heroes across Australia and New Zealand.
Listen to Pam Wilson, National Community Experience Manager and creator of the Westfield Local Heroes program talk about the impact of the program to our local communities.
