Communities First Wales: Concern over scheme changes

Concerns have been raised over the impact of changes to the Welsh government's flagship anti-poverty scheme.

The Communities First programme was set up in 2001 to help people living in some of the most deprived areas of Wales.

But following a series of critical reports the programme is undergoing a major shake-up.

The Welsh government says there has been strong support from many stakeholders.

BBC Radio Wales reporter Nelli Bird looks back on the last 10 years of the programme through the eyes of two of the partnerships - one at Wrexham's Caia Park housing estate, and one at Gibbonsdown, Barry.
