Designated Safeguarding Officers

We have set up a dedicated Designated safeguarding team consisting of


Eleanor Porter – Lead  based in Washington 0191 5483082

Barry Stidolph - Deputy Lead based in Bede 0191 4837002


Chelsea Smith based in Bede 0191 4837002

The team can be contacted during normal opening hours:
8.30am – 4.30pm (Monday – Thursday), 08.30am – 4.00pm (Friday)

If the young person is considered to be in immediate danger and in need of protection, or if the alleged perpetrator poses a threat to others, a referral should be made to the local social care service and, where appropriate, the police. This should be done immediately. If a crime has taken place, the police must be contacted (999 emergency, 101 non-emergency).

Out Of Hours Support

A person wishing to report a safeguarding concern outside of working hours should contact their Local Authority Out of Hours Social Care Service, which can be found at by entering the relevant postcode.
