Christians Against Poverty at St. Andrew's
Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is a national charity, based in Bradford, who support churches in establishing Debt Help Centres in their local area. Each centre aims to help clients organise their finances and, with the help of FCA approved agents, find the most appropriate way to deal with their debts. This may be through Debt Repayment Plans, Debt Relief Orders or other forms of insolvency. The service is free and open to all irrespective of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation etc.
The Darlington CAP Debt Centre was established in September 2020 and covers all households in the postcodes DL1-DL5. Whilst St Andrew's is the lead partner in this service, we are very grateful for the support we receive from other local churches of all denominations. As a non-profit organisation, offering our services for free, we rely on the generous financial support of a variety of individuals and organisations to ensure our operating costs are met. Amongst others, we are fortunate to receive funding from Awards for All, Cinnamon Network, Communities Together Durham, County Durham Community Foundation, Darlington Building Society.
