Christians Against Poverty (CAP)

CAPs Vision Statement:

‘Freeing people from the miserable grip of UK poverty. Always through the church. Always hope’

We are committed to working with CAP, addressing some of the causes of poverty and debt in our local community.

Poverty is not just about money. It affects relationships, physical and mental health, and can seem like a prison with no escape. CAP is primarily a debt counselling charity founded in 1996 by John Kirkby, who had experienced unmanageable debt for himself, causing the breakdown of his marriage and losing his home.

CAP also tackles some of the causes of debt, through its 3 Services; Job Clubs, Life Skills Course and Fresh Start Groups, (for people with life affecting dependencies), as well as the award winning CAP Money Course. We run a Job Club and have already helped many people to gain confidence and to find a job they like.
