Why Life Skills?:

We know there are people in Buckingham who are just about getting by on a low income. If that’s you, Buckingham Parish Church will soon be offering a local support service called Life Skills. An eight-week course, developed by the charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP), teaches practical skills and money management techniques in a hands-on way, such as shopping and cooking inexpensive but healthy meals, resisting temptation, and maintaining good relationships.

It will help you build a budgeting system that works for you, encourage you to consider saving, develop your decision-making skills and so gain in confidence. You’ll also make new friends and you’ll be offered one-to-one support by a CAP-trained volunteer from our church.

All CAP's services are completely free and are available to everyone.
