CAP exists because nobody should be held hostage by debt and poverty. But the truth is that they are rife in the UK. In a society where people live behind closed doors, thousands are desperately poor. Unable to feed their children, incapable of paying to heat their homes in winter, the grip of poverty is relentless. It breaks families apart and drives many to think that suicide is the only solution.

CAP are passionate about releasing people in our nation from a life sentence of debt, poverty and their causes. Through our services, which are all run through local churches, we are tackling poverty head on. Our vision is to bring freedom and good news to people in every community through 1,000 CAP projects by 2021.

LIFT's aim is to help skilled & unskilled Christian volunteers to form teams who assist Christian mission organisations around the world to complete essential construction projects & medical projects.


We are a generation that believe a better world is possible. Where everyone can thrive and where an end to extreme poverty gets ever closer as we pursue justice. Alone, we can feel overwhelmed but together we are unstoppable.

It’s time to get connected, to a world that is broken yet full of possibility.

It’s time to get connected, to the people who grow our food, make our clothes, need our support. It’s time to get connected to a global church living out Jesus’ mission. It’s time to get connected to each other as we gather around a cause that will define our generation.

As we listen to each other; begin to serve and collaborate together, God is at work as change begins in our own hearts and the wider world. We realise our interdependence on each other, how intricately connected we all are, how much we all need each other.

As a generation we unite, determined to tackle climate change, the refugee crisis, inequality and global poverty with passion and perseverance. We refuse to give up or become defeated; guided and inspired by our Creator, filled with the Spirit of God, we look to him to give us strength, wisdom and love as we live this adventure out day by day. Will you join us?

Together We Are. We Are Tearfund.
