Knowmore is a free and confidential legal service. We give legal advice and support to people who have survived institutional child sexual abuse. We acknowledge that many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have also experienced intergenerational trauma from government child removal policies. At knowmore, we will work with you in a culturally safe and trauma-informed way. We acknowledge that not all Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people may want to speak with an Aboriginal Engagement Advisor. If so, we may arrange for you to speak with a non-Aboriginal member of our Support Services team. You have the right to decide on your journey with knowmore.
