Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is an award-winning debt-counselling charity. CAP helps 1000s of people to become debt-free every year. The service is completely free and open to everyone irrespective of religious beliefs, nationality, race, gender, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disability or level of debt. Since it started in 1996 CAP has grown to include 240 centres across the UK, including ones in Carlisle, Whitehaven and Kendal and over that time more than 60 000 people have been helped to debt freedom and are in control of their finances. Clients are met in their own home and a reasonable budget is worked out or, in the case of severe debt, insolvency options are pursued. CAP works with the clients and stays in contact with them until they become debt-free. Here's a quote from one client we have worked with: "CAP was like a ray of light and life has gone from strength to strength since we contacted them." (Steve & Tessa, York).
