Frequently Asked Questions
Is CAP just for Christians?
No. CAP helps anyone regardless of their religious beliefs. CAP aims to ensure that everyone is treated equally on the grounds of race, nationality, religion, age, gender, marital status, sexual preference or disability.
Does is cost anything?
No. Our service is completely free.
Will my creditors cooperate with you?
Yes. We have worked with over 1,000 companies within the finance industry and are well respected. This means that councils, utilities, mortgage companies and other creditors work with us because they have seen the results of our involvement. They know we offer fair repayments based on what you can afford.
How we can help?
When you ring the freephone number, you will be given an appointment with a debt coach near to where you live.
During your first appointment, your debt coach will explain how the process works and what paperwork is required.
Usually our debt coaches work in the St John’s Church site, however a home visit may be possible.
Three or four appointments are normally required to complete the initial stages of your journey out of debt.
