The CAP Money Course is a DVD based course that will teach you:
- How to build a budget. This is the cornerstone of managing your money well. The session includes advice on how to increase your income and how to cut costs.
- The CAP Money system. This system will help to simplify your money and make it understandable. It operates using three accounts for your money: a regular payments account, a cash account and a savings account.
- To use cash instead of cards. Living on cash and getting away from cards means you know exactly where you are and helps you to spend less money.
Doing the CAP Money Course means you will be able to budget, save and spend on the things you want.
After watching the DVDs, trained CAP Money Coaches will be available to help you build your budget and answer any questions you may have. A unique benefit of the CAP Money Course is that, if you discover that you can’t balance your budget and pay off any debts, you may be able to access CAP Money Plus. This is an internet based debt counselling service from Christians Against Poverty and available through CAP Money Partner Churches.
What to Expect
The CAP Money Course is run in hundreds of locations throughout Australia by churches that partner with Christians Against Poverty. The course you sign up for will usually run over three evenings in consecutive weeks, but some are run during the day. Some courses are run from the church building and others in cafes or similar. The number of people attending can range from two to 40.
