CAP

by Colin Dexter

CAP stands for Christians Against Poverty. CAP is a charity offering free debt counselling here in the UK to whoever needs it (no need to be a Christian – that’s a common misconception.)👍-All their services are run through local churches, meaning they are able to pair each person up with someone in their local area. The churches are then able to support them through the debt help process (collecting paperwork, etc) as well as offering emotional and practical support where requested / needed

CAP REPORT 2020

by Colin Dexter

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted each of our lives in a significant way, yet sadly, many have experienced disproportionate levels of hardship. Even before the pandemic, we(CAP) knew that people in debt were struggling on a low income, going without food, experiencing poor mental health, and feeling isolated.

2020 is no different, in the report we found:

  • 84% of CAP clients have an income lower than the national average.
  • 62% borrowed money to pay another bill or debt.
  • Household peak debt hit a record high of £17,917.
  • 58% said that they had nobody to turn to when they had a problem.
  • 28% of CAP clients had considered or attempted suicide as a way out of debt.

You can read the report here.

Debt Free Story 2020 – Client P

The pandemic hasn’t stopped us yet and we’re working hard to ensure it won’t stop us in the future either. CAP phone lines are open, we’re still meeting new clients (remotely) and we’re still progressing cases.-Like P, who created this video and animation herself, so many people feel lonely and burdened with financial worry 😞 . However, thanks to amazing Frontline and Head Office staff, we have still been able to see people become debt-free in the midst of these difficult times and long may it continue!-Are you feeling like P? If so, don’t hesitate to give CAP a call on 0800 328 0006

CAP (Christians against poverty)

by Colin Dexter

CAP is a debt counselling charity. That means that when someone is struggling with their debts, they can come to it and they will take on all the paperwork and phonecalls on your behalf. If a creditor calls someone who is under our care, that person just needs to point the creditor in the direction of CAP and they negotiate on your behalf.-

And of course it’s free – no charge for people for using the services.-Please – if you know anyone who is struggling with money, send them the phone number – 0800 328 0006.
