SAFE Community Clinical Counselling

SAFE Community Clinical Counselling

DIVERSEcity Community Resources Society and Simon Fraser University are partnering to provide the SAFE Community Clinical Counselling program to children and youth, and their families, who are at risk of being recruited into gangs.

With a focus on South Asian and Arabic immigrant and refugee families, services are offered in the respective languages and cultural context. Counsellors will work one on one with youth, as well as in groups with youth and their parents or caregivers, to increase confidence, self-esteem and connections to family, culture and community. Services are based on referrals for children, youth and families with gang involvement or who are at risk for gang involvement.  Services include risk assessment, case management and consultation. This program is delivered in partnership by DIVERSEcity Community Resources Society and the SFU Faculty of Education’s Counselling Program.

This service is designed to help children, youth and their families in the Surrey area who are vulnerable to gang involvement and are displaying risk factors.

This program is primarily delivered at DIVERSEcity’s Community Campus, with some services provided at SFU Surrey Counselling Centre.
