Christians Against Poverty (CAP)
Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is an award winning, national debt counselling charity offering free help and advice through a network of debt centres based in the local church.
We exist because nobody should be held hostage by debt and poverty. But the truth is that they are rife in the UK. In a society where people live behind closed doors, thousands are desperately poor. Unable to feed their children, incapable of paying to heat their homes in winter, the grip of poverty is relentless. It breaks families apart and drives many to think that suicide is the only solution.
We are passionate about releasing people in our nation from a life sentence of debt, poverty and their causes. Through our services, which are all run through local churches, we are tackling poverty head on. Our vision is to bring freedom and good news to people in every community through 1,000 CAP projects by 2021.
