The Affinity Group of churches in Bridgend have teamed up with Christians Against Poverty to provide a FREE debt counselling service in the Bridgend area.  CAP’s service is one of the most in-depth and holistic FREE debt help services available in the UK.  They will help anyone regardless of their religious beliefs and provides a caring service to all.

CAP is a national charity that operates through a growing network of debt centres. There are currently over 300 centres throughout the UK and Bridgend is the newest in Wales.

Using a combination of face to face home visits, budgeting advice, debt management, creditor negotiations, insolvency services and befriending, CAP delivers a holistic and in-depth debt counselling service to those who need extra support.

This award winning charity has been tremendously successful and their latest client questionnaire (of over 1,000 respondents) reported that the vast majority of clients (92%) rated their service as “life transforming” or “a great help”.


“Before CAP, I was going through so much mental depression. I didn’t know who to talk to. I was borrowing money and there were times when, as a pregnant lady, I didn’t have any food. I thought CAP couldn’t help, but I called and my life was put on track.

“Nicky was lovely; she took all my papers away and CAP put my budget in order. I had so many struggles, but every time I rang they’d tell me not to worry, soon I will be free. That confidence and hope kept me going. Before CAP I was sunk in fear, of life but not now. Now I can breathe.”
