Our Community Project uses people centred innovation and social enterprise to empower and build access, equity, social action and community spirit. It seeks to support and motivate, using a citizen driven approach that recognises the value of all people to contribute. Our Community Project is driven by the belief that creating  healthy culture is one of the most powerful forces for change that exists.  One of OCP’s most successful projects has been the creation and implementation  of the Tender Funerals Model.

Tender Funerals is a not-for-profit funeral service delivering personalised, meaningful and affordable funerals, ensuring those experiencing financial hardship are able to access these critical services.

The innovation of Tender Funerals is that this final and sacred rite of passage is placed back in the hands of the community. It is our experience that this leads to not only healthier bereavement but also can catapult us into the centre of life and aliveness. The implications of this create a very real opportunity for building capacity, strength and resilience in our community and therefore our culture.
