Build Community Capacity

An important part of making sure you feel safe where you live is feeling supported by your community and knowing what resources are there for you and your family.

Building Community Capacity is third of four priorities in the Public Safety Strategy.  Our objectives are to increase your community’s ability to respond to emergencies and to increase education and early intervention to support children, youth and their families.

This section of the strategy covers emergency planning and resources, strengthening people’s ties to community and supporting Surrey’s youth population and their families.
