What is the CAP Money course?
CAP Money is a revolutionary money management course that teaches people budgeting skills and a simple, cash-based system that really works. This course will help anyone to get more in control of their finances, so they can save, give and prevent debt. CAP Money is a course devised by the award winning debt counseling charity, Christians Against Poverty.
What CAP Money teaches:
CAP Money is a three-session course that features DVD presentations by John Kirkby, CAP’s Founder and International Director, and Matt Barlow, CAP’s UK Chief Executive. During the three sessions you will learn:
- How to build and live on a budget. This is the cornerstone of managing your money well. The session includes advice on how to increase your income and how to cut costs.
- The CAP Money system. This system will help to simplify your money and make it understandable. It operates using three accounts for your money: a regular payments account, a cash account and a savings account.
- How to live from week to week using cash. Living on cash and getting away from cards means you know exactly where you are and helps you to spend less money. It’s statistically proven that you spend 33% less money when paying by cash rather than cards
By applying these three principles, you will learn how to manage your money, and live your life!
After watching the DVDs, trained CAP Money Coaches will be available to help you build your budget and answer any questions you may have. A unique benefit of CAP Money is that, if you discover that you can’t balance your budget and pay off any debts, you will be able to access CAP Money Plus. This is an internet-based debt counselling service from Christians Against Poverty.
What to expect:
CAP Money is run in thousands of locations throughout the UK by churches that partner with Christians Against Poverty. The course you sign up for will usually run over three consecutive weeks, primarily in the evenings, but some are run during the day. Some courses are run from the church building and others in cafes or similar. The number of people attending can range from five to 60.
The current CAP Money Course has come to an end. Look out for the next course soon.
