CAP’s service: an overview
If you need help with debt, CAP offer a brilliant debt management service that has helped thousands of people go debt free, including 11 people through our local CAP centre in the last three years. Once you contact CAP on the freephone number (0800 328 0006) they will arrange an initial appointment with one of our local CAP Debt Coaches, Sue and Susie.
Sue or Susie will visit you, normally in your home. They will introduce the service and ask you about your income, bills and debts. This information will be used to create a budget for you.
Additional visits: explaining the budget
Sue or Susie will need to visit you again to explain how you will need to stick to the budget to get out of debt.
The next step is for CAP to contact your secondary creditors, such as credit card and loan companies. CAP will support you until you become debt free and all we ask you to do is to work positively with us through this process. The King's Church or one of the other CAP partner churches will match you up with a CAP befriender, a local person to walk through the sometimes long process of finding freedom with you.
