CST upgrades website
Last updated: 2005-09-15
The Community Security Trust (CST) has relaunched its website, providing the Jewish community with expert advice on security and antisemitism.
The website, which can be found at www.thecst.org.uk, features practical advice on how to secure schools, synagogues, buildings and communal events, as well as information about how to report suspicious people or vehicles. It also lists information about the CSTs many different training courses and volunteering opportunities.
An important new feature of the website is the ability for anyone who has witnessed, or is a victim of, an antisemitic incident to report it online. This will allow the CST to give greater assistance to the victim, and ensure that the Police are provided with as much accurate information as possible. It will also enable the CST to compile even more accurate records of antisemitic incidents.
The website also acts as an educational resource, containing online publications such as our groundbreaking study on Terrorist Incidents Against Jewish Communities and Israeli Citizens Abroad, and our annual antisemitic incidents report.
Mark Gardner, CST Head of Communications, said, "Unfortunately, antisemitism continues to pose a serious threat to the Jewish community. The CST is doing all we can to ensure that our community continues to live in safety and security, and this new website will provide everyone with information and guidance about how to protect themselves, their family and friends."
