Our parish of Sunderland: St Mary & St Peter is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults from harm.

We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). Our Diocese of Durham’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor who advises our PSO.

If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the Parish Safeguarding Officer Rev. Susan Sweeting or the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor Beth Miller.

If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police on 999 and your local authority’s children or adult social care services.
