CAP Life Skills

CAP Life Skills is a friendly group that gives people the confidence and decision making skills they need to survive life on a low income. We teach people practical money saving techniques, such as cooking on a budget, living healthily on less, and making your money go further.

What CAP provides

We provide all the training and ongoing support for you to equip those struggling on low incomes to budget and manage life’s pressures. This includes materials to run our eight week course, and also includes ongoing support for your coaches from a dedicated team at CAP’s head office.

To create CAP Life Skills, we took the principles of our CAP Money Course which 11,000 people benefit from each year and made it more in depth and wider ranging so your church can truly serve the poor and save the lost.
