The next CAP money course is approaching fast, so I thought I’d put something together for you to share to get the word out. It’s adapted from the CAP website, but feel free to cut out whatever you don’t need.

Popular CAP Money Course to run again as people say they need tactics to cope with the age of austerity.

Thurrock residents are being given another chance to get their finances in order with a popular free course being run by a local church.

Members of Thurrock Christian Fellowship and Chafford Hundred Community Church, who have been trained by UK charity Christians Against Poverty, are again running the three sessions aimed at helping the local community to best handle the current economic downturn.

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.

The next course takes place at the Thurrock Community Fellowship Offices, Chase Road, Corringham, starting at 7.30pm on 15 May. Contact James Gensberg at jgensberg@me.com.

The following course takes place at the Community Church Offices (behind Tesco), 1st Floor, Unit 2, Fleming Road, Chafford Hundred, starting at 7.30pm on 17 September. Contact Jane Earl at jane_earll@yahoo.co.uk.

About CAP Money – the debt prevention courseCAP logo jpeg
The CAP Money course is the pro-active educational arm of the charity. It is sometimes run by the centres that do debt counselling but mostly the courses are run by churches who want to do something to empower people to fight poverty before it hits.

The CAP Money course isn’t only 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 we’ve seen that learning how to set a budget and stick to it helps to debt-proof people in the long term. There are more than 1200 churches in the UK delivering CAP Money in their locality. See www.capmoney.org.
