SAFE is an initiative by CST that aims to improve the security of the UK’s faith and minority communities. 

The threat of terrorism is all too real in today’s world. SAFE takes CST’s many years of experience protecting British Jews and puts it to the benefit of all British faith and minority communities. Everyone has the right to lead their lives in safety and security.

Any community that feels vulnerable to violent extremism and hate crime is eligible to receive advice from SAFE.

SAFE Webinar Programme 

A series of 9 free one-hour security webinars delivered by CST. Whilst the webinars can be watched in any order we recommend starting with ‘Introduction to the SAFE programme’ or ‘Basic security for your place of worship’. 

Who should attend?

Our programme will be of interest to any member of a community that feels vulnerable to hate crime and violent extremism. This will include people who regularly attend a place of worship, and in particular community leaders, managers of places of worship and people who wish to become involved in making their community and place of worship as safe as possible.
