Survivors of Childhood Trauma (including child abuse)

Blue Knot Foundation works with survivors and those who support them personally and professionally. 

Blue Knot Helpline (1300 657 380) supports adults who have experienced childhood trauma including abuse, their partners, family and friends as well as health professionals. The Helpline is staffed by professional counsellors who provide short-term telephone counselling, information, support and referrals.

When funding permits, Blue Knot Foundation also runs educational workshops from time to time across Australia for adult survivors of childhood trauma and abuse. Through the generosity of our supporters in our end of FY2016 fundraising appeal, we are delivering 8 survivor workshops across Australia in FY2017. 

You will also find abundant helpful information and resources on this website, including fact sheets, videos, survivor stories and other relevant information on childhood trauma and recovery.

Blue Knot Foundation actively advocates for the needs of adult survivors of all forms of childhood trauma to be better met, through the widespread implementation of trauma-informed practice responses and access to affordable and appropriately trained practitioners and services for all.
