Promoting the Pledge
The Fair Funerals Pledge is a nationwide scheme designed to reduce the financial impact that a funeral can have on families up and down the country. Funeral poverty is affecting more and more people, and has increased by 50% over the past five years.
What is the Fair Funerals Pledge?
The Fair Funerals Pledge is a free and voluntary commitment to:
- Recognise that funerals can be expensive and that many people struggle with the cost
- Offer a more affordable option for people who are struggling and make this visible to the public including third party costs
- Charge clear prices for goods and services so that people know what they are buying. Communicate prices in initial conversations and prominently display full price lists
The Fair Funerals Pledge is supported by the National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF).
