CAP Around the World

What started as one man's vision is now an international charity with CAP UK, CAP Australia, CAP New Zealand and CAP Canada making up the international family. The International Operations Team oversee the global development of Christians Against Poverty.


CAP UK is the 'Mothership' of the International CAP Ministry and was founded by John Kirkby in 1996 in response to the tremendous poverty he was confronted by in his home town of Bradford, England. Today, CAP UK is now the leading debt management organisation in the United Kingdom with over 200 centres operating throughout England, Northern Ireland, Scotland & Wales.

CAP Canada

After invitations from Canadian churches to bring our expertise to help answer the problem of debt in Canadian communities, Helen Johnson and Will McLaughlin moved from the UK to pioneer CAP Canada. They officially launched the organisation in April 2013 and already have Debt Centres opening throughout Canada and hundreds of supporters onboard.
