The Ofsted report showing that Children’s Services in Sunderland are inadequate is very worrying and its findings are unacceptable.  I am heartened, however, by the fact the Council seem to have taken on board Ofsted’s recommendations and have started to act to improve safeguarding standards in Sunderland.  

The children and young people of our city should not be in this position.  We now need to look forward to ensure that safeguarding and the care of vulnerable children is brought up to an acceptable standard as a matter of urgency.

Julie added:

"I’m delighted that the Armed Forces Flag will fly alongside the Union Flag today outside the Civic Centre to pay tribute to our armed forces, veterans, reservists, cadets and their families. I look forward to being there at the flag raising ceremony today with colleagues and special guests.

"It is just one way in which we can show our appreciation and support for those in our armed forces and their families, the charities that do so much to assist them, and also raise awareness of events taking place in Sunderland and around the country. Celebrations are taking place this weekend at Recreation Park, opposite The Marriott Hotel, Seaburn.

"Our armed forces do an incredibly difficult and often dangerous job, they do it with distinction and on our behalf. This is our opportunity to come together as a community to say ‘thank you’."
