Answered By: 
The Mayor

Tell Mama is one of a number of third party reporting partners who are used as a conduit to encourage reporting in London. As such they may assist victims to report hate crime to the police. Reports from third party partners are treated the same as crime reports submitted directly to the police and are subject to the same processes of categorisation and investigation   

Other groups such as the CST, Galop and Stop Hate UK are also third party reporting partners.
