The NSPCC’s ‘Underwear Rule’ - PANTS campaign was successfully launched in Sunderland on 20 April 2016 at Farringdon Fire Station in Sunderland.   This event was opened by Deanna Lagun, Vice-Chair of Sunderland Safeguarding Children Board and attended by over 60 multi-agency staff in Sunderland.

Sunderland Safeguarding Children Board (SSCB) are supporting this very important campaign as part of their work to prevent child sexual exploitation in Sunderland and they hope everyone in Sunderland will join them to protect our children and young people from sexual abuse.
