About us

​About Us

We are passionate about lifting people out of debt and poverty through our award winning debt help service and money management course, the CAP Money Course. We started in 1996 when John Kirkby gave up his successful career in consumer finance to help people out of misery and poverty associated with unmanageable debt. We have grown into a national charity with a vision to have a CAP Debt centre, opened in partnership with a local church, in every town and city across the UK.

CAP International

Personal debt causes the same problems all over the developed world so CAP has been invited to help other countries. In addition to CAP UK, CAP Australia, CAP New Zealand and CAP Canada now make up the international family. The International Operations Team oversee the global development of Christians Against Poverty.

CAP Australia

​Since 2000, CAP Oz has been offering life-changing help for those in debt in Australia. Using the same systems as CAP UK, CAP Oz is transforming lives from Sydney to Swansea and Canberra to Charlestown with 30 debt centres across the country.
