About Us - CAP Australia - Free Debt Help

We’ve helped over 3000 families out of debt and poverty.

We exist because we believe no one should be held hostage by debt. Unfortunately, household debt in Australia has only continued to increase, currently at record high levels.

Free, face-to-face help

That's why we work with an ever-expanding network of Churches and volunteers across our nation, delivering free, face-to-face debt help to struggling people.

With the local church

At Christians Against Poverty, we equip the local church to release people across Australia from the crushing weight of debt, poverty and its causes — into a life filled with hope and freedom.

Seeing lives transformed

We believe budgeting skills are highly important to financial literacy and preventing bad debt. In addition to our Debt Centres, we also train churches to run the CAP Money Course in their local community. The results are incredible. We’ve already seen so many lives changed through working with CAP and their local church!
