Description

 

Christians Against Poverty offer a Christian based face to face support to all, irrespective of faith, within your surroundings, or office based if you prefer, working with you on debt management and providing other practical help and support.

 

CAP has a dedicated freephone number for new referrals with the New Enquiries Team on 0800 328 0006.

 

Christians Against Poverty was born to bring about sustained poverty relief through debt counselling, financial education and back to work programmes. CAP’s unique personal approach means that people are supported every step of the way to help themselves out of debt, poverty, and their causes. It is a free and impartial service.

Alongside the debt management we have a befriending service that encourages integration into the community, reducing isolation and loneliness, as well as providing support, motivation, and encouragement.
