For CAP, it has never been about the numbers: it has always been about the individual. For 25 years, CAP has existed to help people rewrite their stories. Today, CAP’s story is simply the combination of thousands of stories, like a patchwork quilt, made up of thousands of individual squares representing lives changed.

‘Before, we had felt like statistics, but to CAP we were people, a family. I wanted to use my story to speak up for others.’

Paula, Debt Centre Manager, mum, wife, former CAP client, and one of the storytellers in this year’s Client report
