In the last few months Simon Lee from Northchurch Baptist Church has joined the Christians Against Poverty (CAP) Debt Centre in Hemel Hempstead as a Debt Coach responsible for supporting clients in and around Berkhamsted and Tring. As well as offering free debt support the local CAP team are also running the Money Course, a free course that will teach you budgeting skills and a simple, cash-based system that works. You can book a place on a course by visiting www.capmoney.org.
Since the onset of COVID-19 in 2020 and as a result of the recent cost of living increases many more people are now struggling with their finances or accumulating unmanageable debts. If that sounds like you, or if you know someone who may be struggling with their finances, then please consider visiting www.capuk.org/gethelp or phoning CAP on their freephone number 0800 328 0006.
Finally, if you are at all interested in getting involved with the work of CAP locally, the team are always on the lookout for more volunteer ‘befrienders’, who support the debt coaches when they visit clients in their homes. To find out more speak to Simon Lee on 07721 890723.
