Local MP attends Christians Against Poverty event
Andrew Bridgen, MP for North West Leicestershire, has praised a national debt counselling charity for its work to help people suffering “astonishing” levels of poverty and fear.
The MP attended an event hosted by Christians Against Poverty, at Margaret Street Church in Coalville. CAP is a national debt counselling charity that offers a face-to-face, comprehensive solution to people struggling under the burden of debt.
Andrew said: “I was astonished to hear that one in four of the people that CAP meet for the first time have no food in their house, and two thirds live in fear.
“The charity is offering an extremely beneficial service, and I’m glad they are available to help people in need in our local area.”
Andrew found out about free training courses that CAP offers to anyone with financial concerns.
Through a combination of budgeting advice, creditor liaison, provisions of a CAP account and personal support, the charity empowers people to work themselves out of debt and transform their finances. CAP is offering a three-session course to get money back under control. Upcoming courses are in Coalville on 1 November, and a new service in Ashby on 7 October and 4 November.
