Surrey First Initiatives To Support Children With Autism

On September 18th, Surrey First announced an expansion of initiatives to support children with autism.

For children coping with autism, finding a place to ‘feel at home’, can be a challenge.

Surrey First wants to help the 1600 Surrey children with Autism, and their families.

Here is a link to a Surrey Now-Leader news article, with details on the plan.

Removing the Monetary Barriers to Youth

Removing the monetary barrier to our youth participating in public activities at our recreation centres, our rinks and our pools. #ImagineOurCity where kids 18 and under just walk to an aquatic facility and enjoy some “liquid fun” and don’t have to consider an admission fee.

Free entry to pools, ice rinks and rec centres for 125,000 Surrey kids - MikeStarchuk.com

As part of Surrey First’s Public Safety Plan, we are proud to announce a $30 million commitment to invest in prevention and intervention community programs.

This means 125,000 Surrey children will now have free access to all City pools, rinks and rec centres.

It will also create a new central hub to allow parents to access community resources for their kids with one phone call.

This is an important step forward in supporting Surrey families and keeping young people active, engaged and moving forward in a positive direction.
