Offering $20,000 and $5,000 grants, totalling $1.26 million annually, to provide vital support to community organisations and the work they do.

Westfield Local Hero alumni have continued to benefit the community with contributions of $7.395 million in grants to more than 700 community organisations since 2018. Fields include family and youth support, health and wellbeing, inclusion and equity, community resilience, and environmental sustainability.

Selected by a panel of Westfield team members and local community partners, the program shortlists three finalists for each Westfield centre, which will then be put to the community to vote for their local hero for 2024. The successful hero of each Westfield centre will be awarded a $20,000 grant for the group or organisation they represent, and the two other finalists will also each receive a $5,000 grant.

Nominations for Westfield Local Heroes close on 18 March 2024. The community vote will be held between 20 August and 9 September 2024 to determine the Westfield Local Heroes at each centre, with the grant recipients announced on 15 October 2024.
