|New partnership aims to help disabled people with debts|
|Friday, 24 June 2016|
The UK’s leading disability employment specialist, Remploy, has just teamed up with debt counselling charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP) to launch a new service to help people in financial hardship.
The partnership means those who find themselves struggling with debt problems will be offered the opportunity to receive free support from the award-winning charity that has won plaudits from, among others, TV’s Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis.
Michael Bishop, who is Remploy’s Strategic Engagement Director, said: “More than a quarter of families with a disabled person are in poverty so we know that both finances and employment are huge issues.
“We are delighted to be partnering with CAP, which offers free, face-to-face debt help through a series of home visits, meaning that the service is particularly accessible.”
Since 2010, Remploy has found more than 100,000 jobs in mainstream employment for people with a range of physical, sensory and learning disabilities, mental health conditions and other disadvantages.
Chief Executive of CAP Matt Barlow added: “It’s great to see our two organisations come together with our shared vision for transforming lives.
“Our own research shows that we’re already helping thousands of people with physical disabilities, mental health problems and learning disabilities every year.
“Our hope is that a recommendation from Remploy will help others feel confident in coming to us and finding the support they need.”
