YMCA Training Wolsey House: The TRUTH!

with 6 comments

If you have been on a New Deal course previously at YMCA Training it may have been at Wolsey House in Princes Street or you may have heard about it.  Two main reasons given by YMCA Training as to why they left are as follows:

  1. Wolsey House wasn’t big enough for their needs;  Or
  2. A participant let off the fire alarm which made everyone evacuate the building including other businesses and those businesses either later sued YMCA Training or threatened to do so (conflicting reports)

Both the above reasons were given by staff at YMCA Training and not New Deal participants.

I will not state that any of the above reasons were lies – I never attended YMCA Training at Wolsey House so I didn’t know the comparison of size between Wolsey House and Dencora House or 517 London Road.

The REAL and actual reason for the relocation to Dencora House were…

YMCA Training were kicked out of Wolsey House!

YMCA Training were kicked out (“exited”, dismissed, forced to move out, had their lease terminated, were given notice to leave) because the other employers in the building complained of:

  • Intimidation
  • Verbal Abuse 

  • Vandalism 

  • Degrading of environment

Wait, this is not all, the biggest reason which resulted in them being made to leave was because one of the other businesses there had one of their employees assaulted.

Hang on, your Induction Pack says…

Yes, section 11 (headed “Standards expected”) of the Induction Pack states:

YMCA Training is proud to have a very high standard of conduct and behaviour within our training centres.

Sorry, YMCA Training, after reading the reason why you left Wolsey House I have to disagree with your statements

  5. This sounds all too familiar.

    CDG shared a building in Basingstoke with other employers. Inmates were forced to come and go via the fire exit, where they had to inhale the cigarette smoke from the centre manager and other members of staff. Inmates were not allowed to come and go via the main entrance to avoid contact with other people in the building.

    CDG have since relocated to another building. For what reason I do not know. Could be because they were overcrowded, maybe they were kicked out.
