Lifting the weight of debt


Being in debt can make people feel anxious, hopeless and worn down but there is a way out. Services exist to give advice and help turn your life around. One of these is CAP (Christians Against Poverty), the free debt advice service.

Gill Knox is the local debt coach for Rye and Winchelsea CAP, providing sensitive, confidential support and practical solutions to your debt, completely free of charge.

All you need to do is book an appointment and Gill can meet with you either at home or at the Rye Foodbank on a Wednesday at the Baptist Church, Cinque Ports Street, Rye, whichever you prefer.

Gill will be able to find out about your situation and work out a realistic budget that includes your essential bills. She will then negotiate affordable payments with each creditor. The budget and payments you will need to make will be explained to you and a CAP Plan will be set up. You will need to make monthly payments into this Plan to cover debt and bills. CAP will then distribute the payments to your creditors, until you are debt free. Advice on petitioning for bankruptcy can also be given for those in serious debt.

According to the money saving expert, Martin Lewis: “CAP are unsurpassed when it comes to the debt help they give people across the country.”

To make an appointment with Gill Knox call 0800 328 0006.
