One 2 Three
Graham Headley, manager of the Christians Against Poverty (CAP) Debt Centre in Brentwood, joined me to chat about the work of this award winning national charity. He explained about how debt can feel like a terrible burden that weighs people down and can feel like a life sentence. The organisation is non-judgemental and simply aims to provide help to people that is provided free. It does not matter the size of the debt. First step is to phone the national number 0800328006. If you live locally you would then be put in touch with Graham at the local centre. He would visit you at home, along with a colleague who has the role of being a dedicated friend to provide support. Graham brings expertise as having studied economics at university and taught the subject at secondary schools. CAP will look at your individual needs to address the situation, helping to show you valuable life skills to deal with debt and help managing finance in the future. We also learnt that as a young child Graham had appeared as an actor in some commercials, including one where he was photographed by David Bailey.
