£50k cash boost for the CST

    The Community Security Trust is to receive £48,869 of government funding to help the fight against antisemitism.

    The grant awarded to CST is the largest single sum given to an organisation as part of the Home Office's Hate Crime Action plan which tackles disability, race, religion, sexuality and transgender hate crimes.

    CST was one of only eight organisations to receive funds. More than 40 others were rejected.

    A CST spokesman said: "This is the second year in succession that we have been awarded substantial Home Office funding in order to improve the services that we provide to victims of hate crimes.

    "The funding is a welcome demonstration of the Home Office's confidence in our expertise. Crucially, it also shows that the Jewish community is not alone in the struggle against antisemitism today."

    Home Office Minister Alan Campbell said: "We are determined to tackle these devastating crimes. This funding will provide more victims and their families with access to the support they need so they will have the confidence to report crimes, knowing they will be taken seriously and acted on."
