Throughout our 25 year history, Christians Against Poverty has been a movement of the local church supported and financed primarily by individuals. We are now looking to increase funding from statutory bodies to help us grow and improve our debt help service having received our first funding through the Money & Pensions Service (MaPS) in 2020. Statutory funding will be an important part of our income mix, though it remains our desire to be primarily funded through our supporters and our wider movement.
This role needs to be embedded within both our Debt Operations and Fundraising & Communications directorates and highly connected across the wider charity. It holds responsibility for ensuring that CAP is accurately reporting to statutory funders about the programmes they have funded.
