Tender Canberra Region
At Tender Funerals, we believe funerals and funeral care should be meaningful, authentic, and affordable.
Tender Funerals is a not-for-profit funeral service that ensures that those experiencing financial hardship/distress are able to access personalised, meaningful and affordable funerals. We also provide community education and empowerment around after death care.
We provide a full range of services across after death care, funeral/celebration arrangements and body disposal options – many based on sustainable principles – which enable you to have a much greater say in how your loved one is treated after death. We encourage practices that promote healing.
A community venture, we operate in ways that do not leave community members with large debt. We don’t take shortcuts and always put people and relationships first.
Tender Funerals Canberra Region Working Group was established April 2019 with the aim to bring affordable, meaningful funerals to the people of the Canberra and the surrounding region. We are currently in the process identifying additional funding partners and locating a suitable premises for Tender in the Canberra Region.
The Tender Funerals Canberra Region Working Group is currently looking to raise community awareness of our mission and raise death literacy.
