Every day, the staff at City West Housing (CWH) hear uplifting stories, especially during this pandemic, of residents looking out for each other and doing projects that bring the community together.
The Community Impact Awards is an initiative to celebrate CWH residents who are making a significant impact on the people around them. It’s part of our ongoing efforts to ensure all of our residents feel safe and welcomed in their CWH community. It helps us to uncover and shine a spotlight on stories about residents who are making a positive impact in their building and the broader community. And by sharing these great stories, we also think it’s a great way to build community.
We’re looking for nominations for the following five awards:
Community Spirit Award
Recognising those who have been active in and contributed positively to their community, for example, organising an event or project, or reaching out to neighbours.
Outstanding Young Person Award
Recognising a CWH resident, who is 25 years or under, who has overcome barriers to achieve their goals. This can include academic, sports, arts, culture and musical achievements.
Creative Minds Award
Recognising a CWH resident who has made artistic contributions to their community and inspired others with their work.
Unsung Hero Award
We all know that certain someone who is always doing things for others and their building without looking for recognition or reward. This award is to recognise those special neighbours who usually go unnoticed.
Recognising a CWH resident who has shown leadership in their community.
The winner of each award will receive a $1000 Westfields gift voucher that can be used at any store in Australia.
