CAP at St James
Struggling with debt or unemployment? Christians Against Poverty is an award-winning charity which supports people out of debt, into work or simply teaches you to manage your money better.
Our Clitheroe CAP Centre opened in November 2011 and has worked with over 170 clients to date. We have loved celebrating with those clients who have become debt free.
Our new CAP Centre Manager is Matt Wood.

CAP has been running Money Management courses for many years, and they are suitable for anyone who wants to manage their finances better. You don't have to be in debt or struggling at the end of the month to benefit ... but if you are, the skills you will learn will be invaluable. The programme explains a highly effective money management course that teaches people budgeting skills and a system for using bank accounts and cash that really works. This course will help anyone to get more in control of their finances, so they can save, give and prevent or deal with debt.
St James’ Church has partnered with Christians Against Poverty to offer Money Management courses in our community. The service we offer is completely free. Our 'full' course includes 9 modules, running over four sessions, which are normally held at St James' Church. We also offer a 'short' course of five core modules, and this can be run over a day or two shorter sessions. In addition to the open public courses, we can arrange tailored courses for community groups and charities, and occasionally run online courses. We also run youth and children’s money management sessions, which we’re keen to use with local schools and community groups. Please contact Graham Haldane, our lead Money Coach, if you are interested in discussing options.
We have the following public course planned for 2023/24, all at St James' Church, Clitheroe:
Day course: Saturday 11th November 2023, 09:30-15:00
Half-day course: Saturdays 17 and 24 February 2024, 09:30-12:30
