Brighton Light Trust is the local charity representing Christians Against Poverty (CAP) . Through their service CAP help over 28,000 people across the nation deal with severe anxiety as a result of financial hardship.

Locally our team complete over 350 consultations per year; helping individuals and families budget, pay off debts, improve mental well-being and restore relationships through bespoke personalised programs.

On average 3-5 people go debt free per day through the charity's help. 1,400 are being helped get back into employment (CAP Job Clubs). Over 100 are assisted out of addiction through CAP Release Groups. 12,000 are educated through the UK’s biggest free financial education course CAP Money/Life Skills.

Leading advocates include HRH Prince Charles, Archbishop Justin Welby and TV presenter Martin Lewis (founder of ). He describes CAP as "the leading holistic debt advisory service without equal."

On a local level CAP, through the funding from Brighton Light Trust serve across the city and beyond. From Southwick to Seaford, Lewes and Burgess Hill and occasionally Eastbourne in order to meet demand. Clinics and advice pop ups occur at Foodbanks and Job Centres each week.

All monies donated go towards the cost incurred for servicing debts on client’s behalf; emergency food aid; energy card top ups; bus passes so clients can attend appointments without forgoing meals and the provision of household items such as cookers, microwaves and washing machines.
