The CAP Money Course
Tywyn Baptist Church is one of more than 1,000 churches of different Christian traditions across the UK who are regularly offering the CAP Money course, as they work together to positively impact the communities around them.
The CAP Money Course has been found to be useful for newly retired people, soon-to-be students, mums dealing with mounting bills, families saving for a wedding and everyone in between.
About the CAP Money Course – the debt prevention course
The CAP Money Course is the pro-active educational arm of the CAP charity. It is sometimes run by the centres that do debt counselling but mostly the courses are run by churches where congregations want to do something to empower people to fight poverty before it hits.
The CAP Money Course isn’t just for people with debts (though they can be catered for); it’s for everyone: students to the newly retired, single people and for families because learning how to set a budget and stick to it helps to debt-proof people in the long term. There are more than 1,000 churches in the UK delivering the CAP Money Course in their locality. www.capmoneycourse.org
