New CMA Connect model generates strong interest
Launched on 1st July, in just four weeks CMA has received strong interest in this new debt advice model with 50 churches already looking at opening a service in their local community.
John Franks (CMA C.O.O.) says, 'Demand for Connect was well researched before and during the the pilot period. We believed that the model would allow more churches and agencies to get involved in providing debt advice for their local communities. We are delighted that this strong and immediate interest has proven that expectation. And the timing is right: sadly, the post Covid-19 period is going to see a surge in demand for debt advice across the UK; we are pleased that Connect is going to help build our network of affiliate advice centres, reaching more communities, helping more people. We want to play our full part in helping those blighted by money problems find, 'Freedom from debt, Hope for the future'.
