About Us

Tender Funerals is not-for-profit, community-led and owned. People and their communities are in control of their funeral experience, doing as much or as little as they wish. Tender Funerals began in Port Kembla as a community uprising, seeking to address the financial burden of funerals and bring death back where it belongs - with the community. Tender Funerals has been successfully operating in Port Kembla, NSW, since 2016. They have held over 600 funerals and continue to grow. Tender's full range of services are accessible, inclusive and based on principles that align with people's culture, values and beliefs and enriching experience to honour the deceased and assist with a genuinely healthy bereavement. 

A volunteer team are working to bring this successful model to the Canberra Region. We will operate under a social franchise agreement with Tender Funeral Australia, servicing Canberra, Queanbeyan, Yass, Cooma, Goulburn, Bungendore and Braidwood areas.

How we will use the funds

Can you imagine having to choose between no funeral and going into years if not decades of debt to farewell a loved one?

The cost of a funeral can be devastating to someone earning a low income or with no savings, especially when that death is unexpected.
 
Tender Funerals believes that funerals can be affordable without compromising a meaningful service. We can do this by adopting a not for profit and community-led approach to funeral care.

We need to raise funds to establish our not-for-profit facility in Canberra. This facility will include a mortuary and a beautiful space to prepare for the funeral. We intend to provide an accessible and culturally diverse area with a full range of opportunities for a meaningful and beautiful experience.

Our service will be available to the entire community, with a payment structure to provide everyone with the opportunity to farewell their loved ones the way they wish.
