“Christians Against Poverty is a free debt counselling and advice service that offers a listening, non-judgemental ear and a real solution to your debts.

“I will help you to sort through all your paperwork and make phone calls with you to gather all the information needed for our team of specialist debt advisers to find the best route out of debt for you, to see you through to financial freedom and beyond.

“Please don’t suffer in silence, we are here to help.”

The Littlehampton Debt Centre reopened in January and the area it covers includes Rustington, Angmering, East Preston and Arundel.

Emily said it was better for people with money problems to seek help sooner rather than later and overall, CAP debt centres had helped thousands of people to find a way out of debt.

Debt can be caused by many different reasons and at first it may seem you can manage a drop in income but when bills start to get missed, debt can rapidly build up until it becomes unmanageable.

Call the freephone number 0800 3280006 to speak to the team and they will arrange for Emily to get in touch.
