Blue Knot Foundation's symbol for Blue Knot Day and it's symbol all year round is the tangled knot.
When children are abused they become confused.... life, even in adulthood, can be chaotic and tangled.
Blue Knot Foundation helps untangle the knot of child abuse for adults who were abused as children.
Blue Knot Foundation helps those who have experienced childhood trauma to recover.

“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.”
