Mobilising the community - The Tender Funeral model

Jenny Briscoe-Hough, Amy Sagar and Michelle Elliot

What does it take for a funeral service to build community around the dying? 

Tender Funerals is part of the community movement towards reclaiming the rites around death and dying, one of life’s most important experiences. For those who want to participate in this last significant rite of passage, it can be an enriching and life-affirming experience. They hope to empower people to take control of their dying, their deaths and their funerals.

Come along and learn for yourself, what a founder, funeral director and an artist can do to change not only the way we can deliver a funeral service, but build social capital around the inevitable loss of human life.
