Under-threat Genesis scheme created fewer than 800 jobs

Help

Fewer than 800 people found jobs through a failed Welsh government back-to-work scheme, BBC Wales can reveal.

It was hoped Genesis Cymru Wales 2 would help 20,000 people find work or get qualifications.

But only around half that number took part and just 7% of them found work.

Opposition assembly members say lessons need to be learned from the £36m scheme.

Daniel Davies reports.
