We’re very excited at Marlborough House to be embracing change.
In September we welcomed Arlene Kersley as our new Chief Executive and she has brought in some fresh ideas on how we might consolidate our efforts and focus on what the YMCA does best. We want to make sure our young residents are at the very top of our priorities here and ensure that they have every opportunity to progress towards stable lives in the Reading community.
YMCA Reading will be reaching out to partner organisations that can offer practical support to the young people we accommodate at Marlborough House.
We are also focusing on modernising the Milward Sports Centre, located at the back of Marlborough House on Parkside Road. This much used but very tired facility needs a complete overhaul to make it fit for purpose in the 21st Century. Please keep an eye out, there is some big fundraising required to make this happen! If you would like to make a donation please see our Just Giving Page.
