Blue Knot Day





Blue Knot Day 2018

Thank you for your interest in supporting Blue Knot Day, Blue Knot Foundation’s annual awareness raising event, which is held on the last Monday in October every year. This year Blue Knot Day will be held on Monday 29 October, a day in which we invite all Australians to show their support for adult survivors of childhood trauma. There are a number of ways you can help support Blue Knot Day and the five million (1 in 4) Australian adults who are survivors of childhood trauma. 

Throughout the month of October you can show your support for adult survivors by downloading the Blue Knot Day ‘REAL LIVES. REAL CHANGE.’ social media campaign, and sharing with the hashtag ‘#unitebkd’. Resources include social media guidelines, facts and tips and 2 campaign images. One is for survivors. The other is for supporters; personal and professional. The images highlight the rights of survivors to live ‘a life free from shame and silence’ and our commitment to compassion for all adult survivors of childhood trauma.

“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.”
