£36m Genesis back-to-work scheme faces closure

A back-to-work scheme supported by £36m of public money faces being wound up a year early after a review found it was failing to hit some targets.

The Welsh government wants to revoke £23m of European funding from Genesis Cymru Wales 2, which the review said was "under-performing".

It was supposed to find work for people struggling to get jobs, including single parents.

Officials are looking at ways to close the scheme ahead of schedule in June.

Political correspondent Tomos Livingstone reports.
