iReport.ie Racism Reporting Centres Network
What is the iReport.ie Racism Reporting Centres Network?
iReport.ie Racism Reporting Centres Network is a growing national network of over 30 organisations committed to anti-racism and equality, where people can be supported in reporting racism through iReport.ie and when possible, receive information and/or support where to get redress and further help.
In ENAR Ireland we strive, with help of our Network, to collect the evidence of racism in Ireland, increase reporting of racist incidents and provide support to those affected. Those experiencing or witnessing racism face many barriers in reporting or simply don’t know how and where to do so. These barriers mean that people from minority ethnic communities experience racism which goes unrecorded and unacknowledged by the state and the wider society, meaning that it simply stays invisible.
To overcome these barriers the iReport.ie reporting form guarantees confidentiality, is short and easy to use, is written in plain English, and can be filled in anonymously, if the person so wishes. The system also allows for people to be supported in recording racist incidents by our Reporting Centres working with those communities most at risk of racism.
Currently, there are approximately 30 organisations acting as iReport Racism Reporting Centres (see below) where you can get the following support:
- Receive support with reporting what happened to iReport.ie online system so there is a record of the racist incident.
- Depending on the capacity and expertise of the Reporting Centre, get further advice where to get redress and how to complain to various bodies; some specialised organisations may also provide advocacy service, help filling forms etc.
- Find out how the iReport.ie works and why it’s important to report racism.

Become iReport.ie Racism Reporting Centre
Currently, there are approximately 30 organisations acting as iReport Racism Reporting Centres. We would like to extend this national network to increase the reach of iReport.ie, promote the tool, support victims and witnesses of racism, increase reporting and build the confidence of our Members to deal with racism in their communities.
However, iReport.ie is still a relatively new tool and those experiencing or witnessing racism face many barriers in reporting or simply don’t know how and where to do so. These barriers mean that people from minority ethnic communities experience racism which goes unrecorded and unacknowledged by the state and the wider society. To overcome these barriers the iReport.ie reporting form guarantees confidentiality, is short and easy to use, is written in plain English, and can be filled in anonymously, if the person so wishes.
- Promote iReport.ie in your community and among your service users/members/staff;
- Promote iReport.ie on your website and social media;
- Support victims and witnesses of racism in making reports to iReport.ie;
- When possible and depending on organisation’s capacity and expertise, provide basic further information on where and how to report and get redress (training will be provided by ENAR Ireland in 2017).
If you would like your organisation to become involved with this network, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your contact information in the following order:
