New debt counselling centre’s official launch

SUPPORTERS, friends and church members joined together at New Life Church on Sunday to celebrate the official launch of a new debt counselling centre in Saffron Walden.

Debt counselling charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP) has partnered with New Life Church, in Shire Hill, to bring its in-depth service to the area, offering free debt help to local people struggling with overwhelming debt.

Saffron Walden centre manager Sarah Blackaby said: “We have just had a really busy month visiting clients who need help. The launch day was a great opportunity to inform people about CAP and how we can provide a hope and a solution to their debt.”

Saffron Walden is one of 16 places which began taking bookings in April – rare good news for people who are seeing a squeeze to their income.

CAP offers an in-depth, caring service to people with spiralling personal debt. Every client is visited in their own home and supported face-to-face until the day they are debt free.

The charity has 160 centres around the UK currently supporting �66m of secondary debts for its clients regardless of income, age, gender, background or faith.
