CAP Debt Advice and Support

The Covid-19 pandemic is expected to push many more people into financial difficulty. If you are feeling weighed down by debt, free help is available.

You may think your situation is impossible, but there is hope. The CAP Edinburgh West Debt Centre is run by Holy Trinity Church in Wester Hailes. Our friendly team will listen to your problems, book you in for a confidential appointment and provide a practical solution to your debts.

CAP Debt Centre Manager, Melanie Kilburn, explains “Sometimes people feel they have made mistakes but very often they have been driven into debt by suffering from job loss, relationship breakdown or coping with illness in the family or a bereavement – situations that are often difficult, emotional and have a financial impact and are very often out of our control.”

CAP is a debt counselling charity which works all over Scotland and the rest of the UK. The local debt centre works with each person until they become debt free. Meanwhile CAP’s head office specialists negotiate with creditors, create a budget and provide ongoing technical support.

TV’s Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis has described CAP as “unsurpassed” in its in-depth service which encourages and supports each household to repay what they owe – or go through an insolvency – until the day they are debt free.

If you know things are out of control and you’re stressed, missing meals or sleep, please give CAP a call and let us help you get your life back on track.

CAP is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Our service is free to all. CAP stands for Christians Against Poverty, but we are open to people of all faiths and none. We never force our faith on anyone, we never judge anyone. We go the extra mile, working with people until they are
