Who we help

knowmore provides free legal advice and support to survivors of child sexual abuse. This includes people who were sexually abused by a family member, and people who were sexually abused in an institution such as a school, sporting club, children’s service, orphanage, foster care, residential care, religious organisation, government organisation or any organisation that was involved with children. We work with many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, including Stolen Generations survivors. We work with young people who are leaving care.
