Community Security Trust is the British Jewish community’s defence organisation and exists to protect the community from antisemitism and terrorist threats borne out of extremism and hatred.

CST’s work covers many different areas. It provides security for synagogues, schools and other communal organisations, by offering security training, advice and support to Jewish communities across Britain. It works with people across the full Jewish spectrum, from strictly orthodox through the whole range of progressive and secular Jewry.

CST’s network of over 3000 trained volunteers protects approximately 1000 Jewish community events, large and small, every year.
