No more registrations for private sessions will be taken by the Royal Commission after 30th September. Blue Knot Foundation supports the Commission in calling for an ongoing forum for survivors to tell their story and be heard.

The royal commission has been advised and informed through many submissions and private hearings with regards to medical sexual crimes on young unwed pregnant girls 1958-1975 and non pregnant girls residing in institutional care - but they advise they are unable to hold public hearings into all institutions - yet the brutal and heinous medical sexual crimes are no different to the brutal and heinous sexual crimes committed by men who wore white collars - they have been supplied with medical journal article - re medical crossing boundaries sexual abuse - so hopefully all the evidence will not be set aside when it comes to their final report - these white coat sexual crimes were mainly committed in public institutions - hospitals - under the watchful eyes of hospital board of managements and politicians - we wait to see if there is any coverups when final report is released and it is a royal commission inclusive and not exclusive of survivors

Is this only about sexual white collar crimes between the years 1958-1945?

What about those children who were sexually abused by step- fathers, fathers, uncles and friends etc. When will a commission hear the evidence of all of those affected?

“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.”
