S4M-06865: Debt Relief by Christians Against Poverty and Whiteinch Parish Church

That the Parliament welcomes the launch of a free debt counselling service in Whiteinch Parish Church in partnership with Christians Against Poverty (CAP), which aims to empower some of the poorest and most disadvantaged members of the Glasgow Anniesland constituency to help themselves out of debt; recognises the success of CAP in helping clients by negotiating with creditors on clients' behalf; also notes that it offers a befriending service to combat feelings of isolation as people work within budgets to escape debt; acknowledges what it considers CAP's accessibility in providing the service free of charge and understands that, due to CAP's work, almost 90% of its clients are now able to pay their bills on time every month, and congratulates CAP on a service that it believes should be recommended to other constituents in financial need.
