Tender Funerals Impact Report

In 2021 Tender Funerals conducted an evaluation of our social impact. Over the last five years, Tender has:

  • delivered over 1,000 affordable funerals to families across Illawarra and Sydney, saving the community around $5.8 million.
  • employed 16 staff, 17 celebrants and 4 artists in residence.
  • engaged over 110 local volunteers in its set up and operations. 

Outcomes achieved for families and communities from the Tender model included:

  • healthier bereavement for individuals and families.
  • less funeral-related debt. 
  • increased capacity of families and communities to support each other through loss.
  • individuals and families feeling empowered and respected through the after-death process.
