Poverty just loves to destroy lives. It breaks families apart, isolates people from friends and family, shatters confidence and drives many to think that suicide is the only way out.
UK poverty is real, with millions locked in its miserable grip. We’re not prepared to sit back and let it wreak havoc across our nation.
In a just and compassionate society, no one should be trapped in their home, afraid to open the door or answer the phone. No one should wake up wondering where they’ll find the money to feed their children or heat their home. No one should have to be alone, especially when times are tough.
That’s why CAP is on a mission. To restore hope for those who are lost and hurting. In partnership with incredible local churches across the UK, we’re bringing life-changing freedom and good news to people in desperate need.
Always through the Church. Always hope.
What we do...
Our head office in Bradford is home to over 300 staff who form an incredible poverty busting team. Head over to our website and join charity founder John Kirkby on a tour of CAP and see just what it takes to give UK poverty the boot.
Throughout our 25 year history, Christians Against Poverty has been a movement of the local church supported and financed primarily by individuals. We are now looking to increase funding from statutory bodies to help us grow and improve our debt help service having received our first funding through the Money & Pensions Service (MaPS) in 2020. Statutory funding will be an important part of our income mix, though it remains our desire to be primarily funded through our supporters and our wider movement.
This role needs to be embedded within both our Debt Operations and Fundraising & Marketing directorates and highly connected across the wider charity. It holds responsibility for ensuring the CAP is accurately reporting to statutory funders about the programmes they have funded, whilst also proactively engaging with new opportunities for statutory funding of our debt help service.
We are passionate about providing an excellent service to our clients and ensuring our service is well funded in order that we can do this.
We are driven, passionate, strategic, fun, adaptable, visionary, and professional. We put a high value on building excellent relationships both internally and externally.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
