capuk.org is ‘Best Christian Organisation Website’ 2014!

On 1 November, our website was chosen as 'Best Christian Organisation Website' in the Christian New Media Awards 2014! The award acknowledges our site as being engaging and inspiring whilst providing a clear and simple environment for site visitors to navigate. We're thrilled to have won the award!

Claire Cowles, our Creative Media Manager, said, 'We launched the current website following our rebrand at the start of 2013. It gave us a chance to really think through what it might be like for a person to be trying to access vital information while feeling overwhelmed and stressed about their situation. Above everything, we wanted it to be friendly, simple and positive. We are also aware that it has to be able to speak to very different audiences – churches, supporters, potential referrers and the media. It’s lovely for the team to have scooped Best Christian Organisation Website in recognition of all the unseen work they do.'

Supporters and staff take part in a Week Without

calendar23 October 2014

This week has seen hundreds of people across the country spending a week without one or more things to raise awareness of the plight of the UK's poorest (and some cash along the way!). Supporters and staff at CAP are going without all sorts of things – food, transport, shoes, beds, caffeine. You name it, someone's probably cut it out this week in the name of CAP. If you've joined in, thank you so much!

It's not too late either – you can do your Week Without at any time! Just sign up here.
