Waverley Local Hero Awards

Do you know someone who works selflessly for the community? Someone who stands out because of their community work, generosity and commitment to others?

Nominations for Waverley’s Local Hero Awards open February 1 2019.

Each year Waverley Council recognises those in our community who are passionate and dedicated to making a difference, those who make Waverley a special place to live.

This year we have 6 award categories:

  • Strengthening Community: Recognises the important and inspirational work of an individual to a community organisation, in the area of community services, wellbeing and community safety.
  • Community Life: Recognises an individual that has made a valuable contribution to the community through the fields of sports, arts, recreation or culture.
  • Community Volunteer: Recognises the time and effort that a community volunteer has given to an organisation or cause.
  • Working Together: Recognises the outstanding work and contribution of a community group.
  • Second Nature Champion: Recognises an individual who has made a significant voluntary contribution to environmental sustainability.
  • Young Local Hero: Recognises the great efforts of a young person aged between 12 and 24 years who is making a positive contribution in the Waverley Community.

The Awards are a celebration of community giving. No matter what age, our Local Heroes are all linked by a spirit of generosity, a desire to help others and by doing so they make our community stronger.

This is your opportunity to nominate a friend, colleague or relative to be one of our Local Hero’s, and recognise and award their contributions to our community.
