Christians Against Poverty:
Manage Your Money, Live Your Life
What is CAP?
Christians Against Poverty is a national debt counseling charity with a network of nearly 600 centres based in local churches. CAP offers hope and a solution to anyone through its unique, face to face in-depth debt counseling service.
CAP aims to show God’s love in action by providing sustainable poverty relief through debt counseling, 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.
CAP is an award-winning charity and is recognised within the finance industry. This means that councils, utilities and mortgage companies work with CAP because they have seen the results of their involvement. They know CAP offers fair repayments based on what you can afford.
The service provided by CAP is free, and is available to anybody whether or not they are a Christian, through our CAP centre. To find out where your local centre is located visit http://www.capuk.org or alternatively to make an appointment call freephone on 0800 328 0006.
Whilst the service is free for clients, there is an annual running cost to manage each centre. At St Gabriel's our funding is not secure or sustainable and we really want to continue making a difference to the lives of people struggling with debt in our community. if you wish to give a donation to support the running of our local Centre, please click http://www.bit.ly/supportcap
