A church in Helston is offering free help to local people after partnering with a national debt counselling charity.
Central Methodist Church at Coinagehall Street has joined forces with Christians Against Poverty (CAP) and aims to help people by offering home visits for people affected by debt.
Alison Jones, Lizard, Helston and Mounts Bay CAP Debt Centre Manager, said: “Typically, debts can build up when a relationship breaks down, someone loses their job, or through bereavement – so often when people are least able to cope with a financial headache. That’s why we’re so excited to open a debt centre here in Helston. We hope over the next few years to help countless local people and families, regardless of their age, gender, faith or background, to put their debt nightmares behind them and start a new life.”
