CAP Ashby Debt Help

Our you struggling to manage with your Debts?

Our Ashby CAP Debt Centre opened in 2010, and offers the Award winning Debt Counselling Service which is FCA approved from CAP UK. According to Money Saving Expert, Martin Lewis, it is ‘unsurpassed’, offering a service whereby we visit people in their own homes*, and over 3 visits collect all the necessary information and paperwork to provide advice on suitable ways the family / individual can go debt free.

The support we offer is unique to our service; offering not only a designated debt coach, but also a befriender / support worker to walk alongside the family or individual until they are debt free and beyond, if they wish. These individuals can offer signposting support for food parcels, clothing banks, grants and benefits help (among other things), meet up for a chat, and simply be a sounding board for the family.

To see if we cover your area, go to or Call 0800 328 0006 to book an appointment or find out more.
