Registered Charity No: 1042391 (England & Wales), SC043612 (Scotland).
CST (Community Security Trust) is a charity that provides security advice and assistance to the UK’s Jewish community and supports victims of antisemitism. CST is proud of Britain’s diverse and vibrant Jewish community and seeks to protect its many achievements from bigotry, antisemitism and terrorism.
CST represents British Jews on issues of racism, antisemitism, extremism, policing and security. CST is recognised as a model of best practice for a community security organisation and advises similar organisations from other communities as part of a commitment to supporting Britain’s democratic values and the strength of our shared society.
Antisemitic hate crime and terrorism against Jews remain a sad reality in Britain and other countries. CST provides physical security, training and advice for the protection of British Jews and assists those who personally suffer antisemitic hate crimes. CST publishes the only UK-wide statistics for antisemitic incidents and hate crime and its reports on antisemitic hate crime and antisemitic discourse are recognised as authoritative by Police forces across the UK, in government and by all mainstream political parties.
CST is almost entirely dependent on voluntary donations in order to carry out its work. Leaving a legacy will ensure that CST can continue to secure the safety of future generations, so that they can live their Jewish lives without fear of extremism and hatred.
Whatever the size of your gift CST, and those it helps, will be eternally grateful.
