Situation

The personal effects of debt can be devastating, ranging from fear and stress to depression - and even suicide (36% of CAP clients admit they considered suicide before seeking help). Families go without food, and homes are put at risk, as clients are pressured to prioritise debt repayments over basic living needs. CAP's centre network expansion is a crucial step towards giving these families in debt a hope and solution.

Solution

CAP centres bring about sustainable poverty relief through our unique face to face debt counselling services. We give each client hope and a real solution by working out a budget prioritising food and essential bills and negotiating with creditors to agree to the budget. We offer a CAP Plan to help people practically pay their bills and debts. We also help people through insolvency options if required. This means we can help anyone in debt no matter how severe their debts are.
