Charity’s free advice to help people in debt

Have your say

People struggling with overwhelming debt are set to get free help from a new Doncaster charity.

Growing debt counselling charity Christians Against Poverty – CAP – has joined up with Doncaster Methodist Circuit, in conjunction with the One Heart One Voice churches network, to bring the service.

Doncaster is one of 15 places opening a centre this month.

Doncaster centre manager Gary Stephens said: “The church has always been about offering hope and we’re really pleased to be able to give a tried-and-tested route out of debt alongside other great free debt advice in the area like Citizens’ Advice.

“Typically, debts can build up when a relationship breaks down, or someone loses their job, or through bereavement – so often when people are least able to cope with a financial headache.”

CAP offers a unique service to people with spiralling personal debt regardless of their age, gender, faith or background.

Every client is visited at home, the charity does all the negotiating with creditors and local volunteers offer support until the client is debt free.
