What is the CAP Money Course?
The CAP Money Course is a free course that will teach you budgeting skills and a simple cash-based system that works. In just a few weeks, you will get to grips with your finances so you can budget, save and prevent debt.

Budget. Save. Spend.
On your CAP Money Course you will be supported by our trained coaches to take practical steps towards getting control of your finances.
Building a balanced budget
Building a workable budget is vital in taking control of your money. It will help you see exactly what you are spending, how you could save money and prioritise your spending to include the things you really need or want to do.
The CAP Money system
The CAP Money system will five you a practical way to sticking to your budget. The system uses three accounts, so you can make sure your money is going towards the things you planned for in your budget.
Using cash for your everyday living expenses is counter-cultural, but has many advantanges. It is a powerful tool to enable you to stick to your weekly budget for food and living costs. After all – when it’s gone, ti’s gone! Cash enables you to see exactly where you are with your money at all times and adds more values to what you buy.
CAP Money Plus
If you find you can’t afford your essential living cost or meet your contractual repayments on your debt, the CAP Money Plus is for you. CAP Money Plus will negotiate with your secondary creditors (things like bank loans, credit cards, or store cards) and give advice about any priority debt (mortgage, rent, council tax, etc.) to help you achieve a debt free future.
