CAP Welcomes More Staff 

November 2012

As the financial squeeze continues, the Brighton and Hove branch of debt counselling charity, Christians Against Poverty (CAP), is taking on extra staff to bring more free help to those in need

From this week, the centre, based at Holland Road Baptist Church, Hove, will be welcoming two new debt coaches to their team.

The centre, which opened in May 2010, has seen a steady growth in the number of people getting in touch as word has spread of CAP's in-depth and face-to-face help.

Centre Manager Rich Page-Jones said, 'We're delighted to be welcoming debt coaches John Miles and Adelaide Harris onto the team at such a crucial time. We have been booked up months in advance as we continue to cope with the fall-out from the economic downturn. This will mean we have many more appointments available each week and be able to see and help more people, more quickly.'

Typically most clients get in touch after personal recommendation while others are referred by local GPs, housing associations and local council offices.

Clients' creditors are contacted by CAP, a workable budget is set for the household and the charity continues to give support and encouragement until they become debt free.

CAP is a UK-wide charity which has partnered with 200 local churches to bring hope and a solution to people in debt.
