Christians against Poverty (CAP) is an award winning debt counselling charity with a growing network of centres around the UK. It started in 1996 when founder, John Kirkby gave up a career in consumer finance to help people out of the misery and poverty associated with unmanageable debt.

City Hope is pleased to run the Southwark CAP Centre headed up by Sue Ferret (Centre Manager).

Debt Advice

We are passionate about lifting people out of debt and poverty but we also want to help people manage life in more ways than just financially. So alongside the debt counselling we also run other courses.

CAP Lifeskills

From time to time on a Wednesday from 11am-1pm we run a CAP Lifeskills course, aimed at equipping people with some helpful skills for living well. This includes things such as cooking and budgeting but also looks at ways to stay healthy, physically and emotionally.

There's always lots of laughter and chat, and anyone is very welcome to come along.
