Westfield Local Heroes Grant Program

The Westfield Local Heroes Grant Program discovers and celebrates individuals who promote social wellbeing and/or harmony in our communities through their work, across one or more of the three social values of family, youth opportunity and inclusion.

Westfield Local Heroes are nominated and voted for by their community, with three finalists per Westfield centre each awarded a $10,000 grant to support their affiliated organisation's work or activities. 

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.

All nominations will be assessed by selection panels against the following criteria to create a shortlist of 6 finalists per Westfield Centre.

The 6 shortlisted finalists per centre will be promoted on all Westfield communications channels and in-centre, and the community will be invited to vote for their preferred Westfield Local Hero.

The three successful Westfield Local Heroes per centre from the public vote will each be awarded a $10,000 grant to support their affiliated organisation’s work and programs to grow and thrive.

Nominations open: 19 March 2019.

Nominations close: 8 April 2019.
