Christians Against Poverty
Christian Against Poverty (CAP) runs 220 debt centres nationally, some of which are linked to churches in Chelmsford Diocese.
Each client is given a CAP Account and makes a weekly or monthly payment into their account to cover all their debt repayments which CAP then distributes on their behalf.
Clients can make an appointment at their local centre by phoning 0800 328 0006.
