Plan for the Social Well-Being of Surrey Residents
The Plan for the Social Well-Being of Surrey Residents (shortened as the Social Plan) was adopted by Council in February 2006 to strategically direct the City’s actions on social issues in Surrey.
The Social Plan focuses on five themes or social issue areas that were identified as priorities by the City of Surrey:
- Children and Youth
- Community Development and Diversity
- Crime & Public Safety
- Housing and Homelessness
- Substance Abuse and Addictions
View the Summary Social Plan Report to see the priority social issues and recommendations.
Through an extensive community consultation process, thirty priority issue elements and 65 recommended actions were identified. The Social Plan divides the thirty issue elements into two categories:
- five are issues for which the City has primary responsibility - Stage 1 Action Plan
- twenty-five are issues for which the City has limited, secondary or no responsibility -Stage 2 Action Plan
Annual reports showing progress on Social Plan
The Social Plan is action-oriented. Its final recommendation is that the City prepare an annual report on the implementation of the Social Plan, to communicate achievements and seek Council’s endorsement of future actions.
