CAP Job Clubs launched in Westminster

Today was a very significant day in the life of Christians Against Poverty as we launched a brand new initiative to help unemployed people. 

CAP Job Clubs will be something else the church can do to help people tackle poverty - and when we tell you almost a third of our debt clients are jobless, you can see that this is an issue close to our hearts. 

So today, in front of a crowd of finance industry professionals and MPs at Westminster, we explained (with the help of two fantastic clients - pictured,left) the kind of poverty that's out there - and what the church is doing to tackle it.

New look for CAP

New look for CAP

CAP is today launching a brand-new look aimed at bringing clarity to our expanding ministries.

The new green CAP logo has been designed to communicate the friendly but professional service that has saved the lives of thousands of clients – as well as ensure a good reputation with both the finance industry and our supporters.

It is the first new look for the organisation in six years and has been timed to show the wide variety of ways we are now working, through the local church, to tackle poverty on their doorstep.

Not only do we work with the church to offer the debt counselling we are best known for, we now help around 10,000 people to learn money management skills through the CAP Money Course. And, in March, CAP is set to launch CAP Job Clubs – a brand-new service to help unemployed people.

Our busiest day

Our busiest day

Today (Jan 28) we’re expecting to have our busiest day on record as the number of people ringing for our free debt counselling reaches its annual peak.

The ladies answering our freephone number are ready to talk to around 200 people calling for help but the post Christmas influx is not just about overspending on festivities.

Our research shows that most people calling just couldn’t face dealing with their debt problems before Christmas – and that many people who recommend our service had time off creating a peak in January. Common situations actually involve serious and long-term problems including rent and mortgage arrears, job loss and relationship breakdown.
