CAP supporters blog about their ‘Week Without’

Meet Carolyn and Anthony. They took part in our 'Week Without' by only spending £1 a day each on food. What's more, they chose to share their experience with us all online! See how it went by reading their blog.

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.

CAP’s London bound for awards ceremony!

CAP’s London bound for awards ceremony!

Today Matt, John and a team from CAP's Head Office are headed down to the 2014 Charity Times Awards Gala Dinner and Ceremony in London. Christians Against Poverty has been shortlisted to receive two awards this year and tonight we will find out who has won.

The first award we are shortlisted for is ‘Charity of the Year: with an income of £5million - £10million’. This is in recognition of our efforts to expand our debt help service, which now reaches over 260 local communities across the UK, and for the launch of our new initiative CAP Job Clubs (now with over 90 clubs). It also acknowledges our continued efforts to make all our processes as efficient as possible helping us to deliver the best service to those with the very least.

The second award we are shortlisted to receive is ‘Fundraising Team of Year’, in response to our campaign sponsoring Big Church Day Out last year. Through this campaign 1,000 people become Life Changers through our regular giving programme. It was already a huge encouragement to see so many people committed to support our work to break the burden of debt and poverty, so to have the fundraising campaign acknowledged is simply an added bonus!

We are looking forward to hearing the results tonight!

CAP Job Clubs hit 100!

calendar17 October 2014

This weekend, we trained up around 60 people who will open our 21 new CAP Job Clubs around the country. From Kirkcaldy down to London, these 21 new clubs take our total coverage up to 101 locations around the UK!

We're thrilled to have reached this milestone less than two years after pioneering this service because we know it represents so many more people who will be helped back into employment. Since we opened our first CAP Job Clubs in March 2013, one in seven of our club members have found work.
