Real heroes fly under the radar

nominate now!

Do you know someone who volunteers their time and energy to help keep the Flying Doctor in the air? Someone who flies under the radar, never seeking praise?

We need your help to thank them. Because without the generosity and support of emergency services and health workers, volunteers, fundraisers and everyday Australians who help us out with everything from admin to emergencies, we'd never get off the ground.

Nominate someone in your community who deserves to be recognised, in the 2019 Local Hero Awards, and they could win $5000 to help fund a vital community health or wellbeing program in their area.

Nominate someone today and they could win $5,000 for community health. Nominations close April 2019.
