Welcome to the Interdenominational Safeguarding Panel Website

The  Interdenominational Safeguarding Panel was established in 2001 and we changed our name to Interdenominational Safeguarding Panel in 2022. The Panel is a not for profit company limited by guarantee  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.  The Panel Safeguarding Officer operates as the the Safeguarding Officer for the three denominations noted above. 

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 organisationsand agencies who are not members of the three denominations.





More specifically how is your church doing in regard to safeguarding vulnerable groups? 

As we come to the end of the summer holidays  and are thinking about getting ready for the new terms' activities in September - How about doing a safeguarding self assessment as part of your preparations? Visit our news page for more information
