Westfield Local Heroes is a new community recognition and grants program, connecting and enriching communities.
Individuals are nominated and voted for by their communities, with three finalists per Westfield Living centre each awarded a $10,000 grant to support their affiliated organisation’s work, programs or activities.
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.
The program is open to staff, volunteers, members or agents of organisations in all sectors including business, government, education, sports, welfare, community and not-for-profit. The nominee’s work must occur within, and benefit the community of, the local area of a Westfield centre.
