CAP Life Skills

CAP Life Skills is an 8-week course aimed at supporting those on a low income.

People who go on the course find it helps them to build both their skills and confidence    making them better able to cope with the pressures of daily living.
The course covers such areas as

  • shopping and cooking on a budget
  • money management
  • lifestyle and relationships
  • building healthy self esteem
  • general organisational skills

It is not just a teaching course but very much a sharing of skills and experiences.

The course was devised by Christians Against Poverty and the course co-ordinators at Poole Christian Fellowship are Jenny King and Martine Smith.

Both Jenny and Martine have four children and so know about the pressures and expense of family life!

Before retirement, Jenny worked as a teacher –  for many years with special needs children. Now a grandma, she  spends much of her time with family, or volunteering for the church and CAP centre.

Martine works part time, while studying for an Open   University degree and managing her family as a single     mum. She also brings her current experience of bringing up children to PCF’s parenting course
