Clergy Support Trust (formerly Sons & Friends of the Clergy) is the UK's oldest and largest charity focused exclusively on supporting the wellbeing of Anglican clergy and their families.

The charity is an amalgamation over time of six Anglican clergy support organisations. The first of these, the Corporation of the Sons of the Clergy, was founded in 1655 by a group of sons of clergy to support destitute clergy who had lost their 'livings' under the rule of Oliver Cromwell. In 1678, the organisation, by then known as the Governors of the Charity for Relief of Poor Widows and Children of Clergymen, received a Royal Charter from King Charles II.
