We exist because nobody should be held hostage by debt and poverty. But the truth is that they are rife in the UK. In a society where people live behind closed doors, thousands are desperately poor. Unable to feed their children, incapable of paying to heat their homes in winter, the grip of poverty is relentless. It breaks families apart and drives many to think that suicide is the only solution.
UK poverty is real, with millions locked in its miserable grip. That’s why we’re aiming for 1,000 CAP centres covering the UK, each bringing life changing freedom and good news to people in desperate need. Always through the Church. Always hope.
Personal debt causes the same problems all over the developed world so CAP has been invited to help other countries. In addition to CAP UK, CAP Australia, CAP New Zealand and CAP Canada now make up the international family.
