We know the cost of living and energy crises are causing financial pressure on most UK households, and we are especially aware of the impact this has on the most vulnerable people who were already struggling. 14 million people in the UK are living in poverty.
Christians Against Poverty (CAP) are a great charity committed to tackling the causes of poverty through partnerships with local churches around the UK. “Poverty is so much more than going without. Poverty destroys lives. It robs people of joy, hope, and opportunities. It tears families apart, isolates those most in need of support, and leads many to believe there is no way out.”
Local churches facilitate the work of CAP. Find out how your church can get involved, through either becoming a partner, hosting a speaker, sharing practical resources, praying, taking action or giving.
If you’re looking for help, whether that’s help to get out of debt, find a job, or gain vital life skills, CAP provide a range of free professional services. Find out about the help available near you here.
