What is Tender

Tender Funerals is a not for profit funeral service model offering choice and transparency in delivering personalised meaningful and affordable funerals

Our vision is for all Australians to have access to affordable, meaningful funerals.

We are part of a movement towards reclaiming the rites and changing the culture around death and dying. By delivering community education on rights and responsibilities around death, dying and end of life, we aim to foster open conversations and empower people to take control of their dying, their deaths and their funerals.

We encourage practices that promote healing, including offering people the opportunity to participate in any elements of their loved one’s funeral they would like. For those who want to participate in this last significant rite of passage, it can be an enriching and life-affirming experience. Or if preferred, we can care for their loved one on their behalf. Ultimately we are focused on enabling people to have the funeral experience they want to have.
