Who we help

knowmore helps people who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse. This means people who were sexually abused at school, in a sporting club, children’s service, orphanage, foster care, residential care, religious organisation, government organisation or any organisation that was involved with children.

If we can’t help, we’ll refer you to a service that can.

Who we are

We’re a team of lawyers, counsellors/social workers, financial counsellors and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander engagement advisors – all experienced and trained in working with survivors of sexual abuse and people who have experienced trauma.

You can speak to our specialist counsellors/social workers via a free phone call or face‑to‑face. They’ll help you to access our legal services and provide you with support along the way.
