My Church People dashboard

Text block 6

As part of its response to the recommendations of the IICSA inquiry, the Church in Wales is introducing a new DBS dashboard which is being piloted in the Diocese of Llandaff. My Church People is a dashboard with DBS and safeguarding training information about your staff and volunteers, and will help ensure that all of our Ministry Areas and churches are compliant with the latest safeguarding and DBS requirements.Each Ministry Area will have access to My Church People dashboard which provides DBS information at a glance about your staff and volunteers. Users will find information about people in your Ministry Area, such as:Who has a valid DBS.Whose DBS is due soon.Who has no DBS.Whose role does not require one.Attendance at safeguarding training.The dashboard is fully automated, meaning that it will trigger a reminder when:When a DBS check is dueWhere one is neededWho needs to attend three yearly safeguarding refresher training.This will make it easier for you to monitor compliance and will ensure that DBS checks have not been missed or forgotten. My Church People gives you peace of mind knowing that vital DBS checks have not been missed or forgotten.My Church People makes safeguarding and DBS checks simpler and easier to administer. Most importantly, the dashboard will ensure that all Ministry Areas and local churches are compliant with Church in Wales procedures.Launching the DBS DatabaseWe begin piloting My Church People across the diocese from Tuesday 26 April. We will be sharing more information about the dashboard with Ministry Areas in the next few weeks, including training videos and how to guides.Sign up to Llandaff Matters, our weekly newsletter, to keep up to date with the latest safeguarding information.
