Waverley Local Hero Awards

Waverley has an enviable reputation for its sense of community, having a high number of passionate, spirited residents who do amazing things for our community. Our proud sense of belonging makes Waverley a destination where visitors come to feel part of something.

Waverley's residents contribute their time selflessly and tirelessly to many and varied local causes, services and charities - helping to make Waverley a more caring place to live. A fact backed by 2016 Census data indicating and every growing number of Waverley residents are actively involved in volunteering.

Each year, through its Local Hero Awards Waverley Council recognises and awards unique individuals whose achievements and contributions boosts our lively community spirit. We ask you to let us know who these unique and generous individuals are.

Our 2018 Local Hero Awards were presented in May 2018. Council will open nominations for 2019 Local Hero Awards later in the year. To receive notification of when our 2019 awards are open for nomination please email connected@waverley.nsw.gov.au
