The Debt Saviours


This October CAP was featured in a brand new BBC Two documentary, The Debt Saviours.

The Debt Saviours follows the lives of some very brave CAP clients and frontline workers in the middle of the current UK poverty epidemic, and shows the great work being done through the local Church.

John founded CAP back in 1996. His own experience of debt and his passion for seeing the UK Church in action laid the foundations for the charity, which has since seen hundreds of thousands of families helped out of poverty.

Once a debt client himself, Gareth is now our Bradford Central Debt Centre Manager. Every day he’s visiting clients in desperate need and restoring hope. His story provides one of the most emotional parts of the documentary.
