Blue Knot Foundation, formerly known as Adults Surviving Child Abuse (ASCA), is the leading national organisation working to improve the lives of 5 million Australian adults who have experienced childhood trauma and abuse. Blue Knot Foundation helps adults who have experienced trauma in childhood recover. This includes people who have experienced child abuse in all its forms, neglect, domestic violence in childhood and other adverse childhood events.
Childhood trauma affects an estimated 5 million Australian adults. Many struggle day to day with their self-esteem, relationships as well as their mental and physical health.
Research has established that people who have experienced severe early trauma can recover. And when parents have worked through their trauma their children do better too.
Blue Knot Foundation provides professional phone support, information, resources, tools and workshops to help survivors and their friends, families, partners and loved ones live better lives. We also educate and trains health professionals and others working with survivors to better support them on their healing journey.
Every year on Blue Knot Day, Blue Knot Foundation asks all Australians to unite in support of adult survivors of childhood trauma. For more information or how to get involved in Blue Knot Day, click here >>
