One 2 Three Friday 2.12.22 with Graham Headley from Brentwood Christians Against Poverty.

with Graham Headley from Brentwood Christians Against Poverty.
One 2 Three
Patrick Sherring

Graham Headley from the Brentwood Christians Against Poverty (CAP) chatted about the pressures that people are feeling at this time through the financial crisis and how this is heightened by expectations around Christmas. He gave a useful list of tips for avoiding debt through over spending on presents and provisions for Christmas celebrations. One was to decide on the amount you are prepared to spend and then go and get the cash. This will make it very obvious if you are spending more than you anticipated. He also recommended the podcasts and posts by Martin Lewis, who recommends Christians Against Poverty (CAP) as a useful organisation to provide help for those who are in debt. Graham told us how from small beginnings, CAP now had over 300 centres and 800 affiliated churches. He emphasised that CAP is non-judgemental and open to everyone, regardless of their faith. The assistance offered is completely free. Phoning the free confidential helpline goes to the national head office which will put you in touch with the local CAP centre. The next step in the process is a meeting in the home of the person who has been in touch between an advisor, Graham’s role locally, and an accompanying befriender. This introductory meeting leads to a second meeting where the facts and figures are examined. These are then sent to the head office where financial experts will devise possible routes out of the debt. At a third meeting these routes will be explained, and the client chooses how they want to proceed.

 

Playlist

Jason Mraz – Best friend – a track from his 2014 album – Yes – USA no 2, UK no 17.

Vamps – Seat at the table – seasonal track released last week.

Fleetwood Mac – The chase – a track from Rumours, no 7 in Rolling Stone 500 greatest albums oof all time. Graham chose this track as it is one of his dad’s favourite songs. It came to represent for the band resilience and strength through working together, standing against forces trying to pull them apart.

Oasis – Half the world away – 1994 track, released as the B side of Whatever. Graham’s daughter loves this song. It is about being stuck in a rut, escaping and getting to somewhere else to find refuge.

Snowpatrol – Chasing cars – originally released in 2006, a USA no 3, UK no 6. This track regularly reappears in the charts, now totally over 111 weeks in the UK and selling over one million copies here.  It has sold over three million in the USA. It was the first dance at Graham’s wedding.
