CST (Community Security Trust) is proud of Britain’s diverse and vibrant Jewish community, and seeks to protect its many achievements from the external threats of bigotry, antisemitism and terrorism.
CST provides physical security, training and advice for the protection of British Jews. CST assists victims of antisemitism and monitors antisemitic activities and incidents. CST represents British Jewry to Police, Government and media on antisemitism and security.
CST believes that the fight against antisemitism and terrorism is an integral part of safeguarding our wider democratic British society against extremism and hatred.
CST does not charge for any of its services and is almost entirely dependent on charitable donations in order to cover its costs.
The Holocaust Educational Trust is the leading authority on Holocaust education in the UK, educating people from every background, all over the country. It is our belief that the Holocaust must have a permanent place in our nation’s collective memory.
We work in schools, universities and in the community to raise awareness and understanding of the Holocaust, providing teacher training, an Outreach programme for schools, teaching aids and resource materials. Since 1999, our Lessons from Auschwitz Project has given over 41,000 post-16 students and teachers the opportunity to visit Auschwitz-Birkenau.
Today, in an increasingly fragile world, our work is more vital than ever, empowering and equipping young people to stand up against antisemitism, hatred and prejudice in all its forms.

World Jewish Relief is the UK Jewish community’s international humanitarian agency.
The expertise that we have developed over more than 80 years means that we tackle Jewish poverty, primarily in the Former Soviet Union, and reach beyond our community.
We create opportunities for those out of work or living with disability to become self-reliant; we meet the physical and emotional needs of older people; and we respond to the immediate and longer-term recovery needs of those affected by catastrophic disasters worldwide.
We work through trusted local partners, enabling individuals and communities to support themselves.
We do all of this as an expression of the Jewish ethos to: ‘Anticipate charity by preventing poverty’ (Maimonides).
Yad Vashem UK Foundation supports the educational and memorialisation resources of Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Centre.
We annually sponsor 20 UK educators from Jewish schools and organisations to attend the International School of Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem for their Teachers’ Seminar to enhance their skills at teaching the Holocaust.
Yad Vashem UK raises awareness through its Guardian of the Memory project, ensuring that every named Jewish victim has a memorial candle lit in their memory on HMD and Yom HaShoah.
Our successful Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah Twinning programmes ensure meaningful and well researched links are made between those who can celebrate these important Jewish life cycle events and young Jewish victims who tragically died in the Holocaust.
