Christians against poverty
Cap Debt centre at acorn

Acorn is delighted to partner with Christians Against Poverty to offer free debt advice and support across North Tyneside.This free service is available to the whole community irrespective of religious belief or persuasion and through it we have supported dozens of  individuals and families out of debt for over 10 years while we’ve been operating. 

CAP offers hope and a solution to anyone in debt through its professional, personalised and in depth service, all in the privacy of our clients’ home.


CAP is practical - we demonstrate God’s love in action by providing sustainable poverty relief through debt coaching, advice and practical help.


CAP’s unique ‘hands on’ approach empowers people to be released from the fear, oppression and worry generated by overwhelming debts and we work with credi­tors to bring about lasting solutions. 

In addition we teach clients vital budgeting skills that will last a lifetime

"All that weight is just taken away, I can live again"

CAP offers hope. Most clients accept our offer of prayer right from the beginning and some choose to start on their own journey of faith as we introduce Jesus to them.

But don’t take our word for it, here’s what some of our clients have to say:

"From day 1, the pressure was lifted we talked through our debt problems with them"

"CAP do more than just help me pay my debts: they've become real friends to me"

"through CAP my debt has got under control and I'm starting to realise that life is not bad after all - I think God has something to do with that"

90% of clients say that since becoming involved with CAP their lives have changed for the better.

The worst thing someone in debt can do is stay silent, so anyone in financial difficulty in the area is urged to contact CAP on 0800 328 0006.

Being in debt is nothing to be ashamed of; ring us now and take your first steps on your journey out of debt.

It’s not always easy paying off my debt, but with the support of CAP I hope to get things sorted out.
