Trustees of YMCA face criticism

The chief executive of YMCA Norfolk has written to YMCAs across England to say that he has "little confidence" that YMCA England trustees will be able to deal with the damage caused by the departure of national secretary Angela Sarkis and chair David Bedford (Third Sector, 16 April).

But John Drake's letter stressed that he was not calling for them all to resign.

"I fear mass resignations would leave the Housing Corporation with no option other than to take YMCA England into supervision," he wrote.

A YMCA spokesman said trustees were managing the situation and using an ongoing governance review to tackle the issues.

Chief executives from individual YMCAs were due to gather at an emergency meeting in London yesterday to discuss the situation.
