WCHM was also pleased to see that Natalie Malcolmson from BPD Awareness ACT won the Westfield Belconnen Local Heroes award for $10,000. Westfield Local Heroes are nominated and voted for by their communities, with the three top finalists per Westfield centre each awarded a $10,000 grant for their affiliated organisation. BPD Awareness ACT will use its grant to help fund the cost of hiring a venue for group sessions. The money will also be used to run a parenting course for those with BPD and to pay for community awareness activities.
