CHRISTIANS AGAINST POVERTY
SETTING UP A CAP DEBT COUNSELING CENTRE AT ALL SAINTS
Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is a Christian charitable company in the United Kingdom founded in Bradford, West Yorkshire by John Kirkby in 1996. It is a national organisation specialising in debt counselling for individuals in financial difficulty, including those in need of bankruptcy or insolvency.
The organisation works through a network of regional offices that work in partnership with a local Christian church. Individuals seeking the assistance of the charity give authority to the charity to negotiate with creditors, and the charity will then organise the individual’s finances with the objective of making them debt free within 5 years. The caseworker will create a sustainable personal budget for clients, prioritising basic living needs and offering creditors fair, affordable pro-rata payments as far as this is possible.
Causeway Prospects provides advice, training and resource materials to equip churches for effective ministry and outreach among people dearly loved by God and often marginalised by society. Our own Causeway group is a part of this national Christian initiative for those with learning difficulties.

MAN IN PLACE
Man in place is passionate about accommodating the homeless, but in addition to offering safe and comfortable accommodation we are driven by the desire to support the most marginalised of society. We do not see Homelessness as being the end of the road, but more the start of a new life journey.
Thanks to the support of private sector landlords throughout the Telford & Wrekin borough, we provide 74 units of accommodation to those who find themselves homeless or sleeping rough on the streets. Our staff go the extra mile to welcome people into a safe and comfortable environment offering security and stability to people who often live in a chaotic lifestyle.
