CAP – (Christians against Poverty) is a free debt counseling charity. The Foyle branch in Derry~Londonderry is interested in hearing from/helping individuals and families who need free advice/support to get out of debt.
CAP is funded by churches, the one in Derry being Cornerstone City Church – but the service is provided free to anyone regardless of their background. They are bases at Spencer House, 14-22 Spencer Road.
What makes CAP distinct from debt counselors is that they take a holistic approach to clients visiting them in their own home where they can feel more secure, recognizing that debt can often be a symptom of wider issues. CAP have a dedicated volunteer support that play a key role in supporting clients practically and emotionally through friendship and personal support.
The first step a person needs to take is to ring the CAP free phone number 0800 328 0006 to make an appointment: this takes courage, as no one likes to discuss their debt problems with just anyone. When they ring the head office in Bradford they will be asked a few questions about their circumstances.
There is hope, people don’t have to face this alone and no debt has ever been so bad that it can’t be dealt with.
