  Tender Funerals Canberra Region is raring to go!

We have raised considerable funds towards making our site a reality.  We have so much support (check out our wonderful supporters here).  Our current challenge is the MAJOR hurdle of finding a suitable site.  We need specific zoning requirements for our mortuary, which will allow us to provide a full scope of care for our community.   Our ideal Home will enable a garden, workshop and ceremony space, however, such a site is well over our budget.  Our absolute minimum requirement is a parlour-only footprint of 350m2, with a garage access.   Such sites are proving to be rare.   We are also finding it difficult as very few sites already have an allowance for a funeral parlour in the purpose clause,  adding lease variation to our challenge.  

If you have any ability to help us overcoming these hurdles, we would love to hear from you.

Our Tender Funerals Canberra and Region is community owned which means Tender belongs to the communities we serve. That’s you. If you’re interested, you can join us as a volunteer by contacting us here:

The Canberra Day Appeal is the capital region’s largest fundraising drive, hosted by
Hands Across Canberra. The Appeal supports over 300 local charities and
community organisations and the tens of thousands of people they work with. This
year we are part of over 100 local charities who are getting involved and together, we
aim to raise $1million for our community members who need it most.
