Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass directly connects the police with schools to secure better outcomes for children who are subject or witness to police-attended incidents of domestic abuse. Rapid provision of support within the school environment means children are better safeguarded against the short, medium and long-term effects of domestic abuse.

If you’re looking for childcare, schools or SEND services then visit a new website developed by Sunderland City Council - Sunderland Information Point.

Separation and divorce can be a challenging and upsetting time for all involved. But although there may be a lot going on, it's important to make sure the children get the support they need. The NSPCC have a lot of advise on their website.

Information and support for Grandparents can be found from a Sunderland based charity More than Grandparents for kinship carers and their families.
