Since 2006, Thinkuknow has been keeping children and young people stay safe by providing education about sexual abuse and sexual exploitation. Thinkuknow is unique. It is underpinned by the latest intelligence about child sex offending from CEOP Command.
Thinkuknow aims to ensure that everyone has access to this practical information – children, young people, their parents and carers and the professionals who work with them. Alongside the Thinkuknow website the programme provides educational resources, including films, cartoons and lesson plans, to help professionals raise young people’s awareness.
Where to go for help and support
Early Help and Family Support
If you are experiencing difficulties in your family or are worried about your children, there are people who can offer help and support. If you need more help than your usual support network - for example your health visitor, child’s school, doctor or Children’s Centre - the family support process can help.
Norfolk Safeguarding Children board
Every Local Authority in the country has a Local Safeguarding Children Board in place to make sure that children are protected from harm and that their welfare is promoted. In Norfolk, the Norfolk Safeguarding Children Board (NSCB) is made up of statutory and voluntary partners who work with families and children. We are an independent organisation and make sure that people working with children carry out their safeguarding responsibilities as required by the law.
