A Liverpool South group of churches are offering free help to hundreds of local people after partnering with an award-winning national debt counselling charity.
Long Lane church, Garston has joined forces with Christians Against Poverty (CAP) and aims to help dozens this year by offering home visits for people affected by debt.
Liverpool South centre manager Lisa Andradez said: “Typically, debts can build up when a relationship breaks down, someone loses their job, or through bereavement – so often when people are least able to cope with a financial headache. That’s why we’re so excited to open a debt centre here in Liverpool South.
“We hope over the next few years to help countless local people and families, regardless of their age, gender, faith or background, to put their debt nightmares behind them and start a new life.”
She added that every client is visited in their own home, CAP’s does all the negotiating with creditors, while local volunteers offer support to each person until they become debt free.
