What We Do

The Australian Home Funeral Alliance (AHFA) is the national peak body for home funeral practitioners and advocates, dedicated to the empowerment of families and communities through the provision of ethical and inclusive education, information and advocacy for home funerals and family directed death care options in Australia.

 

AHFA sits as a bridge between community and professional knowledge, advocating for evidence-based practice standards and an increase of people's agency and capacity. By bringing together community and professional voices, we aim to foster a healthier culture around death and dying.

Making home funerals accessible for all Australians.

What do we do?

Provider Network

We're gathering a community of providers from across Australia who are aligned with the mission of making home funerals accessible to all Australians to build relationships and a supportive community

of practice.

Home Funeral Education

We provide information & education to both members of the public and industry professionals to support evidence-based best practices in creating and facilitating home funerals.

Research & Advocacy

AHFA is committed to the promotion and practice of evidence-based death care. We work with healthcare providers, research institutions, organisations and policy makers to advocate for practices that support healthy dying, death and bereavement.

Why home funerals?

A home funeral gives the community the space and time in which to care for their person's body before disposal in a manner that upholds their values and builds positive transformation and experiences of death.

We are dedicated to the empowerment of communities through the provision of ethical, sustainable and inclusive access to education, information and advocacy for home funerals and family directed death care options in Australia.
