Christians Against Poverty at St. Andrew's

The CAP project at St.Andrew's is operational now!

In conjunction with CAP nationwide we have just opened a service to the community. CAP is a debt counselling charity devoted to help people out of debt and learn to organise their finances for the future.

This service is free and open to all irrespective of race or belief and is devoted to helping people to cope with debt. Entirely non-judgmental we aim to help people work their way out of debt in association with CAP national.

If you are in debt and need help contact our local Rep, Rachel, who will begin the process of getting you out of debt.
