Free debt counselling service available
12:00pm Saturday 5th January 2013 in News
FREE help for people in debt is now available following the launch of a joint new venture in Bournemouth.
Christians Against Poverty (CAP) has joined forces with Cranleigh Community Church to offer a debt counselling service.
It is one of 218 centres to open across the country including Poole and Lymington.
Bournemouth centre manager Eren Bailey 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.
“In our society, a lot of poverty is debt-related so our congregation has been working hard to open a CAP centre to help get people back on track.”
Every client is visited in their own home, the charity does all the negotiating with creditors and local volunteers offer support to each person face-to-face until the day they are debt free.
The free debt counselling service which is available to anyone regardless of income, age, gender, background or faith has won a string of accolades and was praised by TV’s Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis. To find out more visitcapdebthelp.org or call 0800 328 0006
