Talking to your children.

From speaking with my own children, I know these events may be especially traumatic for the young people in our lives.

I encourage you to talk to them about what happened, let them express their feelings, and try to have them stay away from social media and rolling news coverage.

You can find further helpful resources on supporting children and teenagers after traumatic events using this helpful guide. More information is also available here.

Violent content online - keeping kids safe.

With the terrible events at Bondi Junction, many of us are worried about the extremely distressing content that children are accessing.

I have been in touch with the eSafety Commission about these concerns. They are working with platforms to take off the most violent content, or content that is used to incite hate or promote violence. If you see content that fits this bill, you can report it here.

eSafety also have guides available on managing parental controls, what to do if you see distressing content online, and broader advice for parents

Providing further information to police. 

If you have any information regarding the incident or possess footage of what happened, please contact CRIME STOPPERS on 1800 333 000 or here. Please do not share this footage on social media.

The NSW State Coroner will conduct an inquest into the attacks. The NSW Government have allocated up to $18 million in additional funding to the Coroners Court to ensure this is extensive and timely .
