The Interdenominational Protection Panel was established in 2001 when the child protection policy ‘For the Sake of Our Children’ was introduced. The Panel is a limited company since 2009 and directors are from the Union of Welsh Independents, Baptist Union of Wales and Presbyterian Church of Wales – “the three denominations”.
The role of the Panel is to support and advise the three denominations in relation to safeguarding practice in their work with children and young people and vulnerable adults. This is done through the production and updating of the safeguarding policy as well as by providing training and support to local bodies.
As a registered body with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) the Panel is responsible for processing DBS checks for employees and volunteers within the three denominations. In 2008 it expanded to become an ‘umbrella body’ enabling it to provide disclosure checks for organisations and agencies who are not members of the three denominations. The panel employs a part time Training and Safeguarding Officer and a part time Administration Officer.
Administrative Officer – Sian Jones
