Report a Racist Incident

The ICI Racist Incidents Support and Referral Service provides a range of supports to people who have experienced or witnessed racism.

The aim of the service is to provide supports and information to people who have experienced or witnessed a racist incident and to monitor the extent of racism in Ireland.

The types of supports we can provide range from referrals to counselling if that is required, information about avenues for redress, support in making a formal complaint to an appropriate agency and information as to where to seek legal representation. The data we gather about racist incidents will be used to inform advocacy for legislative or policy change.

Racist incidents are under-reported in Ireland. Whether the type of incident involves actual violence or threats, damage to property, racist insults, graffiti, racist publications - including on the web - or discrimination at work or when accessing services, we believe it should be recorded.

If you have experienced or witnessed a racist incident you can contact our Racist Incidents Support and Referral Service on 01 645 8058. The service is available between 10am and 12.30pm and 2pm and 4pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Face to face meetings can be arranged by appointment.
