Our Westfield Local Heroes are inspiring community members who work hard to make a positive impact to their local community or environment.


Individuals and the organisations they represent are nominated for their work in the following areas:

Family and Youth Support

Inclusion and Equity

Environmental sustainability

Health and Wellbeing

Community resilience

What we look for

These are the four key things we look for in our Westfield Local Heroes and the organisations and groups they represent:


Role models

Westfield Local Heroes are positive role models who lead by example and who are trusted and respected by members of their community


Impactful contributions

Our heroes’ work or actions positively impact the communities or environment within the local area of a Westfield centre


Grants support the local community

The organisations that our finalists and heroes represent spend their Westfield Local Heroes grants in ways that directly benefit the community or environment within the local area of a Westfield centre.


Community vision

Our finalists and heroes’ organisations have clear goals on how they will continue to help their local communities thrive and build resilience. Westfield looks for additional ways to work with these organisations to help them grow their impact.

Please note

Grants will only be paid into the official bank accounts of the represented organisations or groups. Grants will not be paid into personal accounts.

The organisations or groups that our Westfield Local Heroes represent can include any type of incorporated or unincorporated group or organisation such as registered community groups, sporting clubs, not-for-profits, schools, emergency services, profit for purpose, social enterprise and business.
