Christians Against Poverty

Poverty destroys lives. Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is a debt-counselling charity that helps restore hope to those lost and hurting through debt.

Founded in 1996 by John Kirkby, CAP has expanded nationwide and helped thousands of people. Its mission is to release families from grinding poverty, through debt counselling, community groups and local churches.

Alternatively, go to CAP’s website here to watch testimonial videos of people who have been helped through CAP and the short video by John, The CAP Story. You will also find information about his inspiring book, Nevertheless, well worth a read (and free to order).

Castlehold is a CAP Debt Centre

CAP stands for Christians Against Poverty, which is a national organisation.

Several Island churches have come together to set up a local CAP Debt Centre, with the office based here at Castlehold.
Their aim is to help anyone finding themselves in debt, or at risk of falling into debt.

The Debt Centre is open to all Islanders.
