Tender Canberra Region

At Tender Funerals, we believe funerals and funeral care should be meaningful, authentic, and affordable.

Who Are We?

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.

Thanks to enormous support from The Snow Foundation and Canberra Airport, Tender Funerals Canberra Region will open its doors at 49 Laverton Avenue, Fairbairn, in August 2024.

Representatives of Tender Funerals Canberra Region, The Snow Foundation, Canberra Airport Group, Molthus Construction and Tender Funerals Australia visit the site, currently under renovation
