Struggling with debt?

CAP can help

1 – Home visits Home visits If you live in a postcode covered by a CAP Debt Centre (use the postcode search above to find out), phone the freephone number. After you call CAP, a Debt Coach from a local CAP Debt Centre will visit you in your own home.

2 – An effective budget An effective budget Our trained debt counsellors will work out a realistic budget that prioritises your essential bills. We will negotiate affordable payments with each creditor and attempt to stop unfair interest and charges where possible. Your local Debt Coach will then explain the budget and the payments you will need to make.

3 – CAP Plan CAP Plan In most cases, a CAP Plan is set up for you. This acts like a simple bank account. You will need to make one weekly or monthly payment into your CAP Plan to cover your bills and debts. CAP will then distribute this on your behalf. You can also build up savings through your CAP Plan.

4 – Severe debt Severe debt If you are in severe debt, then we can walk you through insolvency options, such as petitioning for bankruptcy. We can help you to fill out the forms and even attend court with you.

5 – Debt free Debt free You can use your CAP Plan to pay your bills and debt repayments until you are debt free.
