* Important Update - Coronavirus (COVID-19) *

As you are aware Blue Knot Foundation has postponed its calendar of face to face trainings and workshops due to the context around Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our aim is to resume these trainings and workshops later in the year but cannot confirm new dates until we have clearer guidelines around groups coming together. We are monitoring the situation and being guided by the direction of government in the steps that we take so we can continue to keep people safe.  

We appreciate organisations still want to book in some key training for their staff before the end of the year so the Blue Knot Foundation is still taking bookings for in-house training for organisations. If this is something you are interested in please complete this enquiry form

If you are interested in attending one of our public dates, we recommend signing up as a Blue Knot Friend to receive our emails. For more information about this and to register please click here

We have recently released a Building Trauma Awareness webinar series that supports our face to face training and more information about this can be found here

Thank you for your patience and understanding, and we wish you well during these challenging times,

“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.”
