Our impact

Churches across the UK are committed to tackling the causes of poverty in their local area by partnering with CAP and providing free debt help and community groups.

We’ve helped more than 20,000 people become debt free since 2010 

The budget CAP set for me gave me a plan of attack for managing my money in the future. Now instead of spiralling down, I’m spiralling up!
