Weighed down by debt?

If you or someone you know is feeling weighed down by debt, then we can help for free. You may think your situation is impossible, but there is hope. This service is for anyone who is willing to pick up the phone and talk to a friendly person who can help you with your debt problems.

Please call free 0800 3280006 to book an appointment. Our friendly debt coach Pam Ansell from our East Dorset CAP Centre will then call you to confirm your appointment to begin your journey out of debt.

Christians Against Poverty or CAP is an award winning national debt counselling charity that has been serving people for free for 25 years. CAP offers hope and a solution to most people in debt, open to people of all lifestyles, faiths and none. Our service is unique, in depth and absolutely free. We will offer you a variety of support as you work with us from the start to the end of your journey out of debt.

For more information please contact Pam Ansell on 07979 794433. Our CAP East Dorset, Ringwood and Bearwood Centre is a joint project of the Bus Stop Club and Hope Church Ferndown. We have just celebrated our 26th individual or family in our area becoming debt free!

Please note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have temporarily replaced our face-to-face debt counselling service with phone-based appointments. Despite this change, we continue to provide a holistic, personal service for every client. Once it is safe to do so, and following Government guidelines, we’ll look to resume our face-to-face home visits.

Smiling Susan Cooking 60 Christmas Dinners

60 Christmas dinners cooked and delivered with goody bags!

What a wonderful way to spread some good Christmas Cheer!

The Bus Stop Club broke its record this Christmas by cooking and delivering a total of 60 Christmas dinners to individuals and families we support! This was in place of having a sit down meal together at the Centre with clients and volunteers from our various projects including After School Craft, CAP Debt Centre, MOAT Courses (1:2:1 Management of Anxiety and Trauma Recovery), Food Store Cupboard and many others who receive our support.

Each dinner was delivered to the door by one of our super volunteers with a smile and a large goody bag full of generously donated groceries and treats. We say a big thank you again to all involved from those donating and collecting food supplies to assembling meals and goody bags to driving and delivering them. Thank you! Clients have said what a difference this made at this time, with some texting or sending us a Christmas card saying thank you!
