CAP Money Course - Christians Against Poverty

Working in Partnership with St Andrew's Anglican Church

The CAP Money Course is a free course that will teach you budgeting skills and a simple, cash-based system that works.

 In just a few weeks, you will get to grips with your finances so you can budget, save and prevent debt.

Whether you feel pretty organised or whether it's like a lucky dip every time you try to withdraw cash from your account, the CAP Money Course will help you take complete control of your finances.


How CAP can help?


Building a balanced budget  is vital in taking control of your money. It will help you see exactly what you are spending, how you could save money, and how you can prioritise your spending to include the things you really need, or want to do.

The CAP Money system will give you a practical way of sticking to your budget. The system uses three accounts, so you can make sure your money is going towards the things you planned for in your budget.


Using cash for your everyday living expenses is counter-cultural, but has many advantages. It’s a powerful tool to enable you to stick to your weekly budget for food and living costs. After all – when it’s gone, it’s gone! Cash enables you to see exactly where you are with your money at all times and adds more value to what you buy.

If you need more help, then we can help you find a CAP Money Plus. If you find that you can’t afford your essential living costs or meet your contractual repayments on your debts, then CAP Money Plus is for you. CAP Money Plus will negotiate with your secondary creditors (things like bank loans, credit cards or store cards) and give advice about any priority debts (mortgage, rent, council tax, etc.) to help you achieve a debt free future.
