Christians Against Poverty

Christians Against Poverty is committed to bringing life changing freedom and good news to people in desperate need. Now Liskeard and Looe have their very own frontline CAP debt centre.

It’s a completely free, non-profit making service, which has been funded by donations and grants. CAP doesn’t pay off its clients’ debt, instead it helps clients by:

  • Analysing their income & expenditure
  • Advising what income is available (after covering essentials) to repay debt
  • Teaching budgeting skills
  • Advising the best way to deal with debt
  • Taking over responsibility for dealing with those who are owed money
  • Making arrangements to repay the debt
