Support MAC

What MAC offers is a free face-to-face debt counselling service, which empowers people to get out and stay out of debt and begin to live freer and fuller lives. We offer hope and a way forward to anyone regardless of how desperate their financial situation is.

Your donations of time and money make an incredible difference to the people we help. These are just some of the comments we have received:

“Thank you for your help and kindness - more than we can express in words”

“Thanks… you’re miracle workers”

“Thank you for lifting this debt mountain off my back long enough for me to see a path up it. It feels good to be able to see it this way and on a positive note”

Who are Cambridge MAC?

In 2004, a small group of people met together with a vision to make a practical Christian response to the growing problem of debt in our city and country. This led to the establishment of MAC - The Cambridge Money Advice Centre. Since then we have seen remarkable growth and real answers to prayer.

It was initially through the Citizens’ Advice Bureau that we received our first clients, referred by them because of the sheer demand and the fact that they trusted us to do a professional job. As we have become known so other clients have been recommended to us. Recently, we have been able to forge links with the Housing Support Services, Family, Social and Mental Health services.

Trained and experienced…

Our advisers are fully trained to provide debt advice and have a wealth of experience between them. All of them are volunteers and represent many churches in Cambridge.

We are part of Community Money Advice, which assists churches and other community organisations in setting up debt advice centres in their local community and supports us in the work we do.
