Anti Poverty and Debt

Christians against Poverty  http://www.capuk.org/home/index.php 
Christians Against Poverty is an award winning debt counselling charity with headquarters in Bradford and a growing network of centres throughout the UK. Thousands of families nationally have already been released from the pressure of debt through a combination of advice, financial education, budgeting and insolvency services, and Longton Community Church recently became a CAP centre in Preston and the surrounding areas.   In Preston this work is managed by Longton Community Church     though other churches are also involved and have trained money management trainers. 

 Also based at  Longton Community Church   is INSIDE OUT --  Projects that Longton Community Church members have participated in include gardening for the elderly, painting the homes of single parents, providing furniture for families living in shabby, run down housing and filling Christmas hampers for those unable to afford a few seasonal luxuries.

  Salvation army food parcels: Food Parcels are only available on referral from a recognised agency such as Social Services or a supported housing project, and we usually only have a very limited selection of canned foods available.http://sapreston.synthasite.com/helping-homeless-people.php Each year there is also a Christmas appeal through which packages of toys or food are provided to needy families and individuals.

 Ingol Methodist Church runs a Thrift shop with cafe

A number of local Catholic parishes have St. Vincent de Paul society groups http://www.svp.org.uk/  and/or peace and justice groups
