Tender Western Sydney

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.

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.

Where Are We Up To?

 How Can I Support Tender?

Tender Funerals would greatly appreciate any kind of support,  financial or otherwise. 
We want Tender Funerals to be available for everyone and we are passionate about empowering the diverse cultural groups within Western Sydney in supporting their funeral needs and practises. We are not able to offer funerals yet, our group is working to make Tender Funerals accessible here in the future. Our dedicated team of volunteers is small but passionate – we are spread across Western Sydney and have come together to bring a Tender Funerals to this valuable and diverse community.
Tender Funerals Western Sydney officially incorporated in May, 2023 with a start-up Board of Directors. We are currently in the process of waiting for approval of our application to become a registered not-for-profit organisation. We are continuing to gather resources, build relationships, host events and gather community support for this new venture.
