  • Mission statement

    CAP aims to show God’s love in action by providing sustainable poverty relief through debt counselling, 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. Vital financial and budgeting life skills are developed through our services, thus ensuring poverty relief is sustainable.

    The charity operates through a growing network of centres based around the UK, all opened in partnership with a local church. CAP’s vision is to answer the national problem of debt in the UK by having at least one CAP centre operating in every major town and city by 2021.
