Dear Barking and Dagenham Safeguarding Children Board,

I would like to know if you have any guidelines or documents which
specifically deal with child abuse related to the belief in
witchcraft, possession and exorcism. If so, what are they and when
were they made?

Have any incidents of child abuse come to your attention, which
involve the belief
in witchcraft, possession and exorcism in the last 20 years?

I would like a list of incidents including, when and where the
incidents happened, and the severity of the case. I would also like
to be given as much detail as
possible of the said incidents.

In addition, I would like to know if any discussions have been
taken regarding the belief in witchcraft, possession and exorcism,
and I would like to be provided with the relevant minutes or
documents.

Yours faithfully,

Emily Short
