Christians Against Poverty (CAP) has been named as the first ever 'Champion' supporter of the Keep Me Posted campaign to ensure consumers are not digitally and financially excluded.
The Keep Me Posted campaign recognises service providers who offer paper bills or statements free of charge, without altering their frequency unless they have consulted recipients first and without removing access to online services. Keep Me Posted already has the support of over 100 organisations, such as mental health charity Mind, the National Consumer Federation and the Royal Bank of Scotland.
The new 'Champion' status is a reflection of how CAP provides all debt clients with the option of paper statements as well as face-to-face visits for each one in their own home.
Judith Donovan CBE, Chair of the Keep Me Posted campaign, said, 'Christians Against Poverty choosing to be our very first Keep Me Posted Champion is a reflection of both the ethos and the day-to-day work of the charity. Their recent study, Offline and shut out, clearly demonstrates that those who are in debt and poverty are less likely to have internet access, which restricts their ability to manage their financial affairs online. We are delighted to have their support and look forward to working closely together in the future.'
