Our service literally saves lives. It keeps families together, relieves stress, restores health, keeps families in their homes, provides friendship and can connect people to church and to the God that loves them.

When financial trouble hits, it’s easy to feel alone and like no one can help, however Christians Against Poverty (CAP) really can help, and is already helping hundreds of people who call up every week. 

Combining CAP’s expertise with the love and message of the church we have a life transforming mix. Every year we help over 27,000 people to get out of debt and see 700 people become Christians through our Debt Help work as well as 10,000 people benefiting from our CAP Money Course.

CAP visits people in their own homes, negotiates with creditors and supports people right up until they are debt free. On top of this, the whole service is free of charge and available to anyone regardless of age, faith, gender or background.

In the UK, there are 280 CAP Debt Centres and three of these are in Southampton. This means that local people can access the service, which is recommended by TV’s Money Saving Expert, Martin Lewis.

“Week by week we see people who think that there is no way out of their money problems and every week we offer them a solution that really works. If you are struggling with debt then there is hope. We can help you.”   

To find out more, call Christians Against Poverty’s freephone number 0800 328 0006 or visit

Our centre is booking 1-2 months ahead, but there is sometimes capacity to see clients earlier. If you are struggling with debt or know someone who is, please don’t delay but call the number above.

If you would like to be involved in this exciting and rewarding ministry then do please contact Ros to chat further either by email: or by chatting at church – I’d love to hear from you.
