LIP Council Members

The LIP council uses the collective community knowledge and unique skills of our members.

This ensures our work focuses on local issues and provides the information and data required to build meaningful plans for the development of truly inclusive communities. With representatives from 30 groups from cultural, business, academic, health and employment services, the council has a deep understanding of the immigrant and refugee experience in Surrey. The Surrey LIP is coordinated by a project management team from contract manager DIVERSEcity Community Resources Society.
