HUNDREDS TO BENEFIT FROM FREE LOCAL CHURCH DEBT HELP

Hundreds of local people are set to benefit from free debt help after an Ulverston church decided to partner with an award-winning UK debt counselling charity.

Ulverston Parish Church has joined forces with Christians Against Poverty (CAP) and they aim to help 20 people and families across Ulverston over the next 12 months by offering home visits for those affected by debt problems.

Christine Lim, Ulverston CAP Debt Centre manager said: “Typically, debts can build up when a relationship breaks down, someone loses their job, or through bereavement – so often when people are least able to cope with a financial headache. That’s why we’re so excited to open a debt centre here in Ulverston.

“We hope over the next few years to help countless local people and families, regardless of their age, gender, faith or background, to put their debt nightmares behind them and start a new life.”

She added that every client is visited in their own home to give them the privacy and dignity that they need. CAP’s head office does all the negotiating with creditors while local volunteers offer support to each person until they become debt free.
