Christians Against Poverty (CAP)

CAP are on a mission to release thousands of families from grinding poverty through award winning debt counselling and community groups. By equipping and empowering local churches to reach out on their doorsteps, they are bringing hope to over 21,500 families every year.


If you haven’t seen the BBC2 documentary yet then you can catch up online: https://capuk.org/debtsaviours


An independent report from the London School of Economics (LSE) has reviewed the wider social impact of Christians Against Poverty and its partnering churches – and valued it at £32M a year. They carried out more than 100 interviews with staff and clients and worked through more than 12,600 client records to find out just how they work and the social impact on society. The report, called Never Just a Number, says CAP provides 'crucial' face-to-face support which goes far beyond simply debt advice. It describes the debt help as 'intensive and holistic' which is 'highly professional'. https://capuk.org/connect/keep-up-to-date/latest-news/caps-invaluable-debt-help-praised-in-lse-report
