Welcome to the Interdenominational Protection Panel Website
The Interdenominational Protection Panel was established in 2001. 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.
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.
