We are thrilled to announce your Westfield Local Heroes for 2022!
Every year we shine a spotlight on individuals who make a positive impact to their local community or environment, and provide more than $1.2 million in grants to support their work to grow.
Westfield Local Heroes are nominated and voted by their communities, and they represent a diverse range of sectors. Westfield will award one Westfield Local Hero per Westfield centre a $20,000 grant for the organisation or group they represent.
Discover your Westfield Local Hero by clicking on your local Westfield centre below.
We also congratulate our finalists who will receive a $5,000 grant for the organisation they represent, and we thank them for their incredible contribution to the local community.
In total, Westfield will award $1.26 million in community grants for Australian and New Zealand communities.
Each year, we receive a high standard of nominations. Every one of our nominations is highly valued and we acknowledge and recognise all our 2022 nominees and their organisations for their contribution to our local communities. View the list of our 2022 nominees here.
In the five years since the program began, we have awarded $6.14 million to more than 600 community organisations. Nominations for the 2023 Westfield Local Heroes program will open in early 2023. Download the Westfield Plus App today and up to date with the latest information.
