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.
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.
All nominations received this year are currently being assessed and finalist will be announced on 10 August.
Between 10 and 30 August we showcase up to 6 finalists per centre on our Westfield website, social media and in our centres so community members can learn about them and cast their vote for their preferred hero.
Voting opens 10 August.
If you have been nominated in the program, we understand it’s a long time to wait between nominations and voting, but please bear with us as we discover the hundreds of amazing heroes across Australia and New Zealand and if you have any questions, contact us at email@example.com.
