Call to develop Communities First anti-poverty scheme

Wales' most deprived communities are "in limbo" as the Welsh Government considers the future of its flagship anti-poverty strategy, according to the Bevan Foundation think tank.

Last month, Communities Secretary Carl Sargeant told AMs he was "minded to phase out" the Communities First scheme.

But think tank director Dr Victoria Winckler said there was "considerable uncertainty" for the areas they serve.

The Welsh Government said no final decision had been made.

Dr Winckler said successful Communities First projects should be retained and developed.
