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 2018.

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 inspirational work that an individual has contributed to community services, wellbeing and community safety.
  • Community Life: Recognises an individual that has made a valuable contribution to the community through fields of sports, arts, recreation or culture.
  • Community Volunteer: Recognises the great contributions of a community volunteer to an organisation or cause.
  • Working Together: Recognises the outstanding work and contributions of a community volunteer group.
  • Second Nature Champion: Recognises an individual or volunteer group who has made a significant contribution to environmental sustainability.
  • Young Local Hero: Recognises the great contributions of a young person aged between 12-24 years, who is volunteering their time and making a positive impact on 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 Heroes, and celebrate their contribution to our community.
