Blue Knot Day 2017

Preparations are well underway for Blue Knot Foundation’s national awareness event, Blue Knot Day, which this year will be held on Monday 16 October. On this day we ask all Australians to unite in support of the 5 million Australian adult survivors of childhood trauma and abuse. The Blue Knot Day symbol is representative of the knotted complexity of childhood trauma, with blue representing a clear blue sky with space for new possibilities.

“Last year, Blue Knot Day was a tremendous success thanks to the support of everyone who volunteered their time, energy and ideas!”, said Cath James, Blue Knot Foundation Fundraising Manager

“We saw morning teas, BBQs, healing trails, murals and faith based services organised across the country, and the Sydney Opera House sails illuminated blue! This year we already have a number of community events and fundraising activities being organised and I would encourage anyone who would like to get involved in any way to please get in touch. Blue Knot Day is run by the community and awareness can only grow with active participation from us all, on a grass roots level”.

If you would like to talk about how to bring Blue Knot Day into your community please call Cath James, Fundraising Manager on (02) 8920 3611/0472 995 859 or email cjames@blueknot.org.au

“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.”
