FAMILIES struggling because of debt are being urged to get help from an Inverclyde project which has recently celebrated another client getting their finances back on track.
Hope Community Church in Greenock works with Christians Against Poverty (CAP) to provide the service via its i58 social action ministry
Alistair McAlees, Inverclyde CAP debt centre manager, said: “It’s great that we can offer this help, while keeping [coronavirus] social distancing rules, as we know how much the people of Inverclyde are suffering at this time.
“We are also pleased to be able to report that we have seen our eighth client become debt-free since we started in 2016.
“It’s wonderful to see the positive impact CAP debt help is having on so many families and individuals in the area. I encourage anyone who needs help to give us a call.”
Mark, a 39-year-old father-of-three, said: “I got into debt after gambling and a relationship breakdown. I felt so low and anxious. I called CAP’s freephone number and, with the help of their local debt coach and financial advisors at head office, I’ve now become debt-free.
“They also got me a referral to Inverclyde Foodbank when food supplies ran out. I can’t thank CAP enough. It’s meant such a difference without the worry of debt.”
