Blue Knot Day is ASCA's national awareness day celebrated in October every year. On this day, ASCA asks all Australians to unite in support of the 5 million Australian adult survivors of childhood trauma and abuse.
This year's Blue Knot Day is on Monday 26th October 2015, with events held throughout the country during the week of October 26 to November 1.
With the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse well underway, the needs of adult survivors are on the national agenda.
Building on our overarching message that "recovery is possible", this year's Blue Knot Day has a theme of "supportive communities help survivors recover". ASCA is asking all communities to be receptive and supportive to the survivors who live within their local communities.
What's the Blue Knot about?
ASCA's symbol for Blue Knot Day and its symbol all year round is the tangled knot.
When children are abused they become confused.... life, even in adulthood, can be chaotic and tangled.
ASCA helps untangle the knot of child abuse for adults who were abused as children.
ASCA helps people who experienced all forms of childhood trauma to recover.
