Islamophobia Support is a free community service delivered by the Islamic Council of Victoria.
Islamophobia Support is a support and advocacy service available to Victorian individuals and communities who have experienced Islamophobia. Islamophobia Support aims to play 4 roles in Victoria.
1. Individual Support
We provide holistic care to individuals who have experienced or witnessed Islamophobia in Victoria. We focus on understanding the specific needs of each person we help and aim to offer appropriate information, advice, referrals and ongoing care.
2. Collaborating with Services and Organisations
We understand that there are lots of different services and organisations available that may be able to provide support in response to Islamophobia. We are connected with human rights organisations, policing services, mental health services, legal services and community services.

3. Engaging and Empowering
We provide education and resources to individuals, communities, organisations and services across Victoria. This focuses on building understanding about Islamophobia, why support and reporting is important, and how we can provide care to individuals.

4. Reporting and Advocacy
We aim to use our learnings and the information we collect to advocate for the rights of Victorian Muslims. It’s really important for Islamophobia Support to understand what is happening in Victoria, and how communities can best be supported.
