We are taking appointments throughout the summer into the Autumn, offering long term holistic debt counselling in Altrincham and Partington. There is also a CAP Debt Centre in Sale. Due to COVID-19, our face to face service model has had to be adapted for the short term and so we are offering telephone or virtual meet-ups. We hope that in the near future we may be able to begin to see clients again face to face.
We anticipate that as the COVID-19 support systems come to an end in the next couple of months regarding Council Tax payment holidays, renters' protection, payment holidays and the re-start of enforcement agent visits, there will be a wave of debt help needed for those who have been hit hardest by the crisis
As we are currently unable to meet in person, The Altrincham CAP Life Skills Service is launching a brand new online community in September 2020 called ‘Kickstart’, which will contain some of the elements of the full Life Skills course and as its name suggests intends to ‘kickstart’ people’s lives again following the Covid 19 pandemic. Kick Start will open up conversations about the challenges people are facing and give practical tips on how to overcome these. Sessions will cover topics such as anxiety and worry, lifting financial pressure, handling habits and more.
If you are in debt, you've come to the right place. Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is a charity that gives free debt help to anyone in debt. Thousands of people have already been given hope and a solution.
We are a national award winning charity offering FREE, long term face to face debt counselling provided in client's homes. We provide this service in Sale, Altrincham and Partington at the present time. Long term holistic support with volunteer befriending support and practical support such as food shopping, practical tasks, and emotional support is available to all clients.
The service is really in-depth and long term. We contact all the creditors on behalf of the client and negotiate with them, working out a way forward for each person. We deal with the banks, councils, credit card companies and payday loan companies every day, gaining their respect. We then support clients as they work their way out of debt, or if the amount is too large, offer insolvency options.
