CAP offers a uniquely in-depth, caring service to people with spiralling personal debt regardless of their age, gender, faith or background. Every client is visited in their own home, the charity does all the negotiating with creditors and local volunteers offer face-to-face support to each person until the day they are debt free.
Statistics show that one in three callers seeking debt help are feeling suicidal but find huge relief through the non-judgemental service that treats every person as an individual.
Typically, debts can build up when a relationship breaks down, or someone loses their job, or through bereavement – so often when people are least able to cope with a financial headache.
The Market Drayton CAP Centre covers the TF9 postcode area and a few locations just outside it. Anyone who would like to contact CAP for support can do so by visiting capdebthelp.org or by phoning 0800 328 0006 or 01274 760839.

Q & As
Is CAP just for Christians?
No. CAP will help anyone regardless of their religious beliefs. We monitor our services to ensure that everybody receives the same caring service regardless of race, nationality, religion, age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, or disability.
Does it cost anything?
No. Our service is completely free. We are able to provide a totally free service because CAP is a charity and receives donations from churches and individuals who want to help people.
Will my creditors cooperate with you?
Yes. We have worked with over 1,000 companies within the finance industry and we are well respected. This means that councils, utilities and mortgage companies work with us because they have seen the results of our involvement. They know we offer fair repayments based on what you can afford.
I am self employed, can you help me?
CAP may not be the best organisation to help you. See the CAP Debt Help website for more information.
