Char­ity is cham­pion of us­ing post

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
