CAP Croydon South

CAP Croydon South Partnership provides a range of services to help free people from debt, poverty and their causes. Old Lodge Lane Baptist Church is an important partner with CAP in this work.
CAP Croydon South runs regular courses – the next one is a Money Course at Christ Church, Purley (see below). In addition there is a Job Club at Purley Baptist Church and there are plans to introduce a new Life Skills group. For those needing help with Debt, visits are made to the client’s home.

Nigel DavidsonWhat is CAP?

CAP is Christians Against Poverty, a nationwide charity which works to rebuild lives blighted by poverty, debt, unemployment or addiction. The Croydon South CAP Debt Centre is run in partnership with Old Lodge Lane Baptist Church and gives free help to anyone who feels weighed down by debt.

The Debt Centre provides counselling and practical help and advice on how to deal with creditors. Clients are visited in their own home at a time to suit them, and are supported right up until they are debt free.

The whole service is free of charge and available to anyone regardless of age, faith, gender or background.

For more information visit the Croydon South Debt Centre web page or the main CAP website.
