Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is a national charity that was founded by John Kirkby. It offers a free debt counselling service with the aim of lifting people out of debt and poverty. The headquarters are based in Bradford.

Debt Centre

The Reading Debt Centre has been open since 2009 and is based at Reading Community Church. It covers those living in the post code areas to the West of Reading. The Centre Manager, who is a trained debt coach, runs the service and is supported by several volunteers.

CAP Money Courses

We also offer CAP Money Courses which are usually run over three sessions. This is a free money management course that teaches people budgeting skills and a simple, cash based system that really works. This course helps anyone to gain more control over their finances so they can save, give and prevent debt.
