ThinkUKnow is an evidence-based education program led by the Australian Federal Police (AFP), delivered nationally in partnership with police and industry partners to prevent online child sexual exploitation.

The ThinkUKnow Australia program incorporates up-to-date research, real case studies and examples from reports made to the AFP-led Australian Centre to Counter Child Exploitation.

The program is pro-technology and addresses topics including self-generated online child sexual exploitation material, online grooming, image-based abuse, sexual extortion, and importantly encourages help seeking behaviour.

The program is a partnership with the AFP, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Datacom and Microsoft Australia, and in collaboration with all State and Territory police and Neighbourhood Watch Australasia.

How to Book a ThinkUKnow Presentation:

ThinkUKnow Australia delivers presentations to parents, carers, educators and students.

  • Parent, carer and educator presentations will provide you with the tools to create a safer online environment for children and young people and empower you to feel confident in guiding them as they access the internet and use technology.
  • Student presentations will provide information on the technologies children and young people use, the challenges they may face, and importantly, how they can be overcome.

ThinkUKnow Australia parent, carer and teacher presentations can be booked for any organisation, community group, sporting club or other group, and are available year-round. ThinkUKnow Australia student presentations can be organised for schools, and youth organisations will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

All ThinkUKnow Australia presentations are delivered free of charge by volunteers from law enforcement and industry.
