Charity is champion of using post
A Maidstone charity has been recognised for its support of a campaign rallying in the face of paperless contact.
The Keep Me Posted campaign has gained the backing of national charities, as it looks to give customers the option of postal contact, instead of a reliance on email and text messaging.
Christians Against Poverty (CAP) based in Loose Road, Maidstone, has become the campaign’s first ever ‘champion’ supporter.
The status has been granted as CAP provides all debt clients with the option of paper statements as well as face-to-face visits in their own home.
Christians Against Poverty chief executive Matt Barlow said: “One in five of our clients have no personal internet access at home or on a smartphone. It’s our privilege to be able to not just post statements but also sit with people and explain what their paperwork means.
“Keeping on top of financial affairs is a real challenge for some people and we will continue to work hard with Keep Me Posted to remind organisations some of their customers rely on paper communications.”
