Blue Knot day is ASCA's national awareness day and will be celebrated on Monday 26th October, 2015 with activities held throughout the week from October 26 to November 1.
On Blue Knot Day ASCA asks all Australians to unite in support of the 5 million Australian adult survivors of childhood trauma and abuse.
With the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse’s well underway, this year’s Blue Knot Day is even more significant as for the first time the needs of adult survivors are on the national agenda.
This year Blue Knot Day has a theme of 'supportive communities help survivors recover'. Building on our overarching message that 'recovery is possible' ASCA is asking all communities to be receptive and supportive to the survivors who live within their local communities.
What's the Blue Knot about?
ASCA's symbol for Blue Knot Day and its symbol all year round is the tangled knot.
When children are abused they become confused.... life, even in adulthood, can be chaotic and tangled.
ASCA helps untangle the knot of child abuse for adults who were abused as children.
ASCA helps people who experienced all forms of childhood trauma to recover.
