Kids Company charity helps young people in Bristol

A children's charity that helps vulnerable young people with issues surrounding poverty has started work at a school in Bristol.

The Kids Company was set up in London 16 years ago and now, for the first time, it is taking its work outside the capital.

Its founder says their work is focused on tackling emotional and practical issues. BBC West spoke to some of the young people who are being helped at the Bristol City Academy.
