Lift up an RFDS Local Hero. Nominate today.

It's that time again. We're looking for those special people all over Queensland. Do you know someone who volunteers their time and energy to help keep the Flying Doctor in the air? Someone who's always lifting others up? They could be fundraisers, emergency or health workers or just wonderful community members who help out whenever the Flying Doctor needs a hand.

Nominate someone in your community for the 2021 Local Hero Awards, and they could win $7500 to help fund a vital community health or wellbeing program in your area.

Our Local Heroes lift up the RFDS every day. Let's return the favour.
