Do you know someone in your community who volunteers their time and is passionate about making a difference?

Give them the recognition they deserve and nominate them for a Local Hero Award! The Local Hero Awards, presented by the City of Kalamunda, provide City-wide recognition for an active community member.

What does a Local Hero do?

A Local Hero could be someone who looks after a Reserve in your area, a champion and advocate for the environment, a volunteer with the local fire or emergency services, or those who give so much of their time looking after members in their community.

Nominations are open throughout the year and winners are picked monthly.

Nomination Categories

There are four categories up for nomination:

  • Senior Community Local Hero (65 years plus)
  • Community Local Hero (25-65 years old)
  • Young Local Hero (12-25 years old)
  • Bridiya Award* (Aboriginal Leadership)

* 2022 - NEW CATEGORY! The Bridiya Award celebrates people who are making a difference and showing leadership by promoting and developing Noongar culture and awareness in the City of Kalamunda.

The monthly awards will culminate at the Annual Thank a Volunteer Ceremony (held in December) at which the Local Hero of the Year Award will be presented.

Tell your story

As part of Kalamunda Connected, the City wants to raise awareness and recognition of those that contribute so much to our community. 

Volunteers are the backbone of West Australian society. Volunteers create vital connections within the Hills community and their contribution to the City’s programs and projects is highly valued. When you volunteer, you show that you care for your community, make new friendships and form deeper connections.Volunteers make such a valuable contribution to the lives of others and enrich our own.

We would like your stories about the volunteers of Kalamunda, so we can celebrate the good work that they do and the connections they make.
