For parents, carers and educators

ThinkUKnow presentations for parents, carers and educators

Our adult presentations are designed for parents, carers and educators and are available for schools, community groups and organisations across Australia

Delivered by volunteers from law enforcement and industry partners (Bankwest, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Datacom and Microsoft Australia), sessions provide information that is accurate, relevant and actionable to educate the community about online child sexual exploitation.

We kindly request a minimum of one month’s notice for all presentations.

If you are seeking a presentation as an education session in direct response to an incident, please provide information in the booking form ‘comments’ section. This booking will be prioritised where possible.

Please note that the presentation for parents, carers and educators is not suitable for children due to the nature of the topics discussed. If children are present, we recommend that presentation organisers assist in providing alternative care arrangements while the presentation is being run.

The presentation will generally run for 60 minutes, however we recommend allowing an extra 30 minutes for questions and further discussion.
