Nominate now for 2023 Westfield Local Heroes
Do you know someone who deserves to be recognised and supported for the positive impact they make to the local community or environment?
Westfield Local Heroes is a recognition and awards program that shines the spotlight on individuals in Australia and New Zealand who make a positive impact to their local community or environment. Across Australia and New Zealand, Westfield will provide $1.26M in Westfield Local Hero grants in 2023.
Community members nominate their heroes and they select three finalists for each Westfield Centre to go through to the community vote. The successful hero for each of their 42 Westfield centres is awarded a $20,000 grant for the organisation or group they represent, and each finalist receives a $5,000 grant for their organisation or group.
Their Westfield Local Heroes alumni include community volunteers and leaders, welfare service providers, first responders, essential workers, health and medical experts, educators, environmentalists, innovators, businesspeople, social entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs.
