Summary of Service

The Islamophobia Response Unit (IRU) is a charity dedicated to supporting victims of Islamophobia. It was founded in response to rising anti-Muslim attacks, and the growing tide of anti-Muslim sentiment, across the United Kingdom. This service is for anyone who suffers or has suffered, an incident of hate crime or discrimination as a result of their Muslim faith (or perceived Muslim faith). The IRU serves four main functions: (1) Provision of free legal support; (2) Provision of basic emotional support; (3) Data collection and monitoring; (4) Referrals to partner agencies and signposting to other services.
