Off to university in September? Already at university?
Tim and Caroline Soar
CAP (Christians Against Poverty) are running a free CAP Money Students’ course designed to help you manage your finances over the coming years.
University life is filled with exciting opportunities to meet new people and try new activities. How you handle your money is important. You want to be free to live your life without the pressures of money weighing you down. You don’t want money stressing you out when you need to focus on your studies, or to miss a great night out because you’re broke.
The CAP Money Students’ course will provide you with the tools you need to successfully navigate your way through your finances. The principles will work to organise your finances irrespective of the size of your income or financial know-how.
With the tried and tested CAP Money course doesn’t matter how much money you have at university or how good you are at maths – it can help.
Throughout the course, you will have the opportunity to build skills that have a lasting impact on your finances. You will be taught the three CAP Money principles:
How to build and live on a budget. This is the cornerstone of managing your money well.
The CAP Money System. This divides your money into a three account system, simplifying the way you keep track of your finances.
How to live week to week using cash instead of cards.
Date: Thursday 8th August
Time: 10am start, 4pm finish. Bring a packed lunch. Tea and coffee provided.
Venue: The Lounge, Walton Evangelical Church, Moorland View Rd, Walton, Chesterfield, S40 3DD

Background: CAP was set up 23 years ago, with the aim of helping people get out of debt and better manage their finances. CAP is a charity funded by thousands of individual Christians throughout the UK who want to help people be free from the anxiety of financial worries. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, is the Patron.
Martin Lewis of ‘Money Saving Expert’ regularly recommends CAP and says ‘CAP is unsurpassed when it comes to the debt help they give people across the country. There’s nothing better to start you on the path to having more money in your pocket’. CAP was authorised by the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) in 2017.
Chesterfield now has its own CAP Debt Centre, set up in 2018. Contact Neville, who offers individual debt counselling at your home for those already in unmanageable debt or who need just a little help, please call 0800 328 0006 or visit www.capuk.org.
