Proposed Merger Between WEA Cymru and YMCA Wales Community College


Merger preparations between WEA Cymru and YMCA Wales Community College are well underway. Joint staff task groups have been working for some months on various action plans in preparation for it, and will continue to do so up until the date of merger and beyond. In April, YMCA Wales Community College’s Board and WEA Cymru’s AGM both ratified the proposal to merge, and the scheduled date for merger is 31 July 2015.

Further work is required to establish the name of the new organisation. This will be addressed alongside a review of governance, commencing now with the aim of presenting a proposal to an AGM in Spring 2016 and for implementation by August 2016. In the meantime, an interim name of WEA YMCA Community College Cymru will be used.
