This can take several visits and involve intimate details of your client’s life. Sensitivity and persistence are required.
Once the financial information gathering is complete CAP HQ colleagues create a plan to become debt free. The local team provides pastoral support during this process and assists the client in understanding the repayment process and will keep in touch until the client leaves or is debt free.
