‘Some abusers organise…in groups to abuse children and adults in a more formally ritualised way.’1

  • ‘Some…use complex rituals to terrify, silence and convince victims of the[ir] tremendous power…’2
  • ‘Some…organise…round a religion or faith [-] …the teaching and training of…children…often takes the form of severe and sustained torture and abuse.’3
