CAP Debt Help - partner with us

Thank you so much for considering opening a CAP Debt Centre at your church. We believe the local church is the hope of the world. A CAP Debt Centre empowers your church to build a bridge into the lives of people in your community, and tackle one of the biggest causes of poverty here in the UK.

Stage 11. Attend a Church Partnership Day

We want to spend some time getting to know you and your church and for you to have the opportunity to find out more about CAP. We run Church Partnership Days throughout the year, across the UK. To book on please click here or telephone the team on 01274 760580 or email churchpartnership@capuk.org. You may also find the following documents helpful:

Stage 22. Sign our Partnership Agreement

The next stage is for your Senior Leader to sign our Partnership Agreement.

Stage 33. Choose a Debt Centre Manager candidate and send in a Reference Form

Firstly you'll need to find a suitable candidate – more information about what is expected and who you should look for here.

Then you just need to send us the reference form for your chosen candidate. Once we have received this we will send an application form to your candidate via email.

Stage 44. We invite successful applicants to attend an Assessment Day and interview at CAP's head office in Bradford

Our Assessment Days are tailor made to prepare your candidate and ensure that they are fully informed about the role. We also conduct a 45-minute interview with them as part of the day.

Stage 55. We invite successful candidates to attend our training at CAP's head office in Bradford

We run extensive training to ensure that your Debt Centre Manager has the tools they need to transform lives in your community. It consists of some distance learning and some residential training.

Residential 1: Two days training, covering induction, I.T, establishing your volunteer team, PR and much more.

Four weeks will then be spent at your Debt Centre working on publicity, generating referrals and building the volunteer team.

Residential 2: Three days training covering in detail the service we offer to our clients. Once this is complete your Centre Manager will be ready to start seeing clients.

Our training is City and Guilds accredited. All of the costs of accommodation and food are covered as part of your contribution.

Stage 66. Launch your Debt Centre

To launch the CAP Debt Centre we will come to your church on a Sunday service, this will introduce your church to the ministry and generate support for your centre. Then you are ready to go, you’ll be part of our growing family of churches rising up to see the lost saved and the poor lifted out of poverty.

We are looking for churches that have a heart for their community and are strong in discipleship. You will need to have a team of volunteers to support your CAP centre fulfilling the following roles: Prayer team, Visit team, Social team and Blessings team.

Our vision is to see nationwide coverage – a church in every town and city in the UK empowered to meet the need in their community. We're over half way there, can your church help fill the gap?
