The National Working Group is a multi-agency response to child abuse linked to faith or belief; comprising representatives from statutory, voluntary, community and faith organisations, as well as individuals with specialist knowledge or expertise, committed to the implementation of a national action plan to ensure this type of abuse is not overlooked within child protection.

The group’s overarching purpose is to improve the national and local response to children at risk, or already being harmed through links to spirit possession, faith or belief. The National Working Group has a strategic role in achieving this, providing consistent high quality responses to child abuse linked to faith or belief, including raising awareness and prevention.
