I haven't told you about CAP yet!!!! By the way thats our logo at the top but for some reason blogger has turned the blue writing in to green?! Weird!
What is it?
John Kirkby founded CAP in 1996 in response to the tremendous poverty he saw in his home city of Bradford. As a Christian, he felt God call him to help using his skills gained through 17 years experience in the consumer finance industry.
CAP aims to show God’s love in action by providing sustainable poverty relief through debt counselling, advice and practical help. CAP’s unique ‘hands on’ approach empowers people to help themselves out of poverty and be released from the fear, oppression and worry generated by overwhelming debts. Vital financial and budgeting life skills are developed through our services, thus ensuring poverty relief is sustainable.
The charity operates through a growing network of centres based around the UK, all opened in partnership with a local church. Over the last ten years, the charity has grown from one man to a national charity with 41 centres open across the country.CAP’s vision is to help answer the national problem of debt in the UK by opening a CAP centre in every major town and city by the year 2021. We have recently been in a period of consolidation and are now stepping out to achieve our 2021 vision by opening 20 centres a year from now on.
Its such an amazing charity, i am so blessed to be able to work for them as a centre Manager at the Walton Centre which is in partnership with the salvation Army.
