They go further. We fly higher.

Is there a Local Hero in your community?
Nominate them today, to win $7500 to boost vital health projects in your area.

Do you know someone who selflessly donates their time and energy to help keep the Flying Doctor in the air?

They might raise funds. They may be a volunteer. They might be an emergency services or health worker who goes the extra mile. Or just an everyday hero who helps out whenever the Flying Doctor needs a helping hand.

We need your help to thank them and celebrate what they do. Because without them, we'd be grounded.

Nominate someone in your community who deserves to be recognised in the 2019 Local Hero Awards, and they could win $7500 to help fund a vital community health or wellbeing program in your area. Nominations for 2019 close 15 April.

With the support of our Local Heroes, the sky’s the limit.
