Tell MAMA maintains a confidential service for victims of anti-Muslim hatred, though any member of the public can report a hate incident or hate crime to the national project.

Tell MAMA is now into its 5th year of operations and has grown significantly with thousands of users who report in on an annual basis.

We are launching a tender process for an organisation or academic institution to provide peer review and consultation on our reporting processes.

The successful applicant will assist the Tell MAMA research team by reviewing and evaluating findings presented in the annual report. They will be expected to ask questions and interrogate our work to improve our data collection and reporting in the future. In addition, they will provide consultation and assistance in planning the report to ensure that it speaks effectively to academic and policy audiences.

  2. Provide advice and guidance to Tell MAMA staff about further lines of commentary, trends or analysis that may be included in the annual report.
  3. Consult with the research team to develop new questions and avenues for future research on anti-Muslim hatred.

As stated this work is to be undertaken in and completed in early 2017. In the first quarter of 2017, the successful applicant will consult with the research team and provde guidance. In early April, a draft of the report will be provided and we expect review to be completed in two weeks. Please note that these dates are subject to change but will only do so in consultation with the successful applicant.
