CAP Debt Help
Christians Against Poverty is a national debt counselling charity working through a network of centres based in local churches. CAP offers hope and a solution to anyone in debt through its unique, in-depth Debt Help service.
CAP aims to show God’s love in action by providing sustainable poverty relief through debt counselling, advice and practical help. CAP’s unique ‘hands on’ approach empowers people to help themselves out of poverty and be released from the fear, oppression and worry generated by overwhelming debts. We are providing sustainable poverty relief as our service teaches clients vital budgeting skills that will last a lifetime.
The charity operates through a growing network of UK debt centres, all opened in partnership with a local church. CAP began in 1996 when John Kirkby, armed with a £10 donation, started to help people in his local community who were trapped in debt.
The charity is now a fast-paced, growing organisation whose vision is to answer the national problem of debt in the UK by having at least one CAP Debt Centre operating in every major town and city to enable anyone to access its life-changing service.
The CAP Money Course
The CAP Money Course is a free course to help people manage their money better and learn to budget, save and spend well.
The CAP Money Course features DVD presentations by John Kirkby, the Founder and International Director of CAP. CAP trains volunteers from local churches to be CAP Money Coaches, who will then work through individual budgets with delegates.
