CAP Centre - Wishaw


Christians Against Poverty is an award winning, national debt counselling charity offering free help and advice through a network of debt centres based in the local church. CAP offers hope and a solution to people in debt through its top-quality, in-depth service, as well as financial education through the CAP Money Course and helping people back into employment through CAP Job Clubs.

CAP aims to show God’s love in action by offering trained debt coaches to support and guide people in debt situations. CAP’s unique ‘hands on’ approach empowers people to help themselves out of poverty and be released from the fear, oppression and worry generated by overwhelming debts. We are providing sustainable poverty relief as our service teaches clients vital budgeting skills that will last a lifetime.

In 2012 Coltness Memorial Church opened a CAP centre offering help with Wishaw and the wider North Lanarkshire area.

CAP Money Course

Alongside the debt counselling service we also offer a CAP Money course. This is a revolutionary money management course that is completely free to attend. The course teaches people budgeting skills and a simple, cash based system that really works, and will halpe anyone to get more in control of their finances, so they can save, give and prevent debt. CAP Money is a  course devised by the award winning debt counselling charity, Christians Against Poverty.
