Moving to Eradicate Poverty in Surrey
Vibrant Surrey and other community partners recently launched a poverty reduction plan.
The Plan was developed through consultaton with stakeholders at the Poverty Dialogue, Friday March 30, 2012,
when over 100 people gathered at the Bollywood Banquet Hall to learn about the findings of the Collaborative Research on Poverty in Surrey
. Vibrant Surrey partnered with Surrey Homelessness and Housing Task Force and Surrey Homelessness and Housing Society to undertake a comprehensive resarch project looking at poverty in Surrey. We worked closely with Surrey City staff, representatives of Fraser Health and with SPARC BC to compile existing data from a wide variety of statistics.THIS is how we end poverty in Surrey
examined poverty and made recommendations for action along four key policy areas: Transportation, Housing, Income and Supports.
