Blue Knot Day is ASCA’s (Adults Surviving Child Abuse) national awareness day. It will be celebrated on Monday 27th October, 2014 and activities will be held in the week from October 27 to November 2. On Blue Knot Day Australians are asked to unite in support of the 5 million Australian adult survivors of childhood trauma. Following the release of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse’s interim report in June, ASCA President, Dr Cathy Kezelman, said the significance of this year’s Blue Knot Day is growing as the issue of child sexual abuse has never been more prominent. This year Blue Knot Day will focus its attention on the education and training urgently needed for health professionals and organisations working with survivors.
