How CAP can help
Building a balanced budget
Building a workable 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 prioritise your spending to include the things you really need or want to do.
The CAP Money system
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.
Is the CAP Money Course for me?
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. There are extra resources for those on low incomes, self-employed people, couples, families and those preparing for retirement - whoever you are, the CAP Money Course will be relevant to you.
What should I expect?
The CAP Money Course is run in thousands of locations throughout the UK by churches that partner with Christians Against Poverty. The course you sign up for will usually run over three evenings in consecutive weeks, but some are run during the day. Some courses are run from the church building and others in cafes or similar. The number of people attending can range from two to 40.
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.
If you would like to have more control over your finances or need help with them then please consider doing this course. If you know of colleagues, friends or family that would benefit from having some help with their finances then please invite them to come along too.
