About Us

knowmore offers free legal advice and support to survivors of institutional child sexual abuse. We can help you consider your options about compensation, redress and other legal issues related to abuse.

We are here to help you and act in your interest. Our staff are trained and experienced in working with people who have experienced trauma, and in providing culturally safe services.

Our story

knowmore was formed in 2013 to support people who were providing information to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. Since the Royal Commission finished in 2017, we’ve continued to provide legal advice to survivors of abuse. Read more about our history.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander support

We’re committed to delivering our services in ways that are culturally safe and respectful for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Read more about our commitment and meet our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander engagement advisors.

Specialist trauma support

We realise that talking about abuse can be difficult and may cause distress. Our knowmore team includes specialist counsellors/social workers who are very experienced in speaking with survivors of sexual abuse.

Confidential service

Your information is confidential and will only be shared outside of knowmore with your permission or in exceptional circumstances where we are compelled or authorised to do so by law. Read more about our commitment to confidentiality and privacy.
