Fact Sheets

Blue Knot Foundation has developed a series of fact sheets to meet the needs of the different groups of people who are impacted by childhood trauma and abuse. This includes those who have experienced it, and those affected by it, including family, friends, partners and loved ones (carers/supporters). Fact sheets have also been developed for people who work with survivors in different capacities.

Example FactsheetsFact sheets have been developed for each of the following groups and are downloadable below: 

These fact sheets, informed by Blue Knot Foundation’s nationally and internationally acclaimed Practice Guidelines for Treatment of Complex Trauma and Trauma Informed Care and Service Delivery as well as additional research were made possible through funding from the Australian Government Department of Health.

Blue Knot Foundation has also developed videos that complement and enliven the information presented in the fact sheets. Click here to view our video series>>

“Blue Knot Foundation has a key role to play in the building of community capacity in care provision to those who have experienced childhood abuse and trauma in any environment.”

NIALL MULLIGAN Manager, Lifeline Northern Rivers

“I think Blue Knot Foundation is a fantastic support organisation for people who have experienced childhood trauma/abuse, for their families/close friends and for professionals who would like to learn how to more effectively work with these people.”

Psychologist Melbourne

“It's such a beautiful thing that you are doing. Helping people to get through this.”


“It was only last September when I discovered the Blue Knot Foundation website and I will never forget the feeling of support and empathy that I received when I finally made the first phone call to Blue Knot Helpline, which was also the first time I had ever spoken about my abuse.”


"At last there is some sound education and empathetic support for individuals and partners impacted by such gross boundary violations.”
