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.
Community Volunteering & Workplace Giving
Our staff are passionate about contributing to community-focused groups, not-for-profits and charities in various ways. Contact our Community Experience Team at email@example.com to find out more about how we support our staff to support their communities.
We are also excited to share that in 2018, Westfield will be launching a new program across Australia and New Zealand that shines the spotlight on important local people, groups and programs and contributes to their growth and development. Stay tuned for more information to come.
