News in brief

All the latest from the world of CAP, including a new home, a Westminster event and more. 

CAP’s new client report released on 20 June

Our annual client report explores real-life experiences of poverty for people like Julie.

Our yearly client report shines a light on the experiences of the people we help – before, during and after their time with CAP. With the effects of the pandemic, energy crisis and higher cost of living all impacting heavily on our service and clients, this year’s report is an insightful and compelling read.

Next month, we’ll be launching the report to MPs, creditors, think tanks and more at a special Westminster event. Sponsored by the Lord Bishop of Durham and taking place at the Cholmondeley Suite in the House of Lords, this is an incredible opportunity to amplify the voices of people living in UK poverty and urge those in power to take vitally-needed action.

You can read the report here. In the meantime, why not consider what you could do to help influence those in power, such as writing to your local MP to start a conversation about poverty in your area and across the UK?

Moving to Jubilee House

You may have heard that later this year we’ll be relocating, which means moving day is edging ever closer for our Bradford head office team! Less than a mile away from our current offices, Jubilee House is a more accessible, practical and cost effective building to house our head office staff as we continue to grow and improve our services. Check out a bird’s eye view above.

Please join us in praying for all the logistics that come with a move of this scale. We have around 400 staff members and lots of equipment to relocate! We’re also hoping to minimise disruption to our debt service as much as possible. We’ll keep you posted on the new address in due course.

CAP takes over UCB

We’re excited that UCB will be highlighting the work of CAP and the Church over the summer, including a special takeover’ starting on Monday 5 September. We’ll be turning up the volume on UK poverty and raising vital funds for our helpline: the first port of call for new clients seeking support.

Encouraging people to seek debt help

Debt can be frightening, isolating and overwhelming. That’s why we’ve been promoting the #BreakFree campaign, which encourages people not to delay seeking debt help. So far the campaign has reached more than 900,000 people across the UK and we’ve seen a 21% increase in new appointment bookings.

If you’re struggling with debt, we want you to know you’re not alone. There are several organisations that provide free support, including CAP. You can search for CAP services near you, or give us a call on 0800 328 0006 (free of charge).

Social media highlights

We currently partner with around 20 @CAPuk centres and this thank you message demonstrates how our partnership is so effective, we’re thankful to work with CAP in assisting those in need #partnershipispowerful

Thank you for helping me buy a new tyre for my car to get me back on the road again. Having been quite ill for some time, so that I could not work full time, my finances suffered a lot, and I got into debt. I had just started an agreed debt repayment plan through Christians Against Poverty, so when my car got a puncture that couldn’t be fixed I was in a real dilemma – how to get mobile and still be able to keep to the debt repayment plan. Your generosity helped get me out of my dilemma and got me mobile again. Thank you so, so much!
