Dear Helpline service users, please be aware that if you left a voicemail on Friday March 23 that it may not have been received due to technical issues. Our IT service provider had hosting issues today that have affected delivery of voicemails. We are told that most voicemails left on Friday March 23 have been lost. Please do call the Helpline again to speak to a counsellor. The voicemail issue is now resolved. We apologise if this has affected you and thank you for your understanding. – Helpline Management

“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.”
