Kairos Women+

Kairos Women+ is a community-led women’s organisation based in Renfrewshire, Scotland. We believe in the power of collaborative decision-making, bringing women and non-binary people together to influence our community as active, engaged members of their local community. Kairos values the strengths and lived experience of each woman+, recognising the influence they have in their own lives and the lives of others, and actively reaches out to women+ experiencing tough times to ensure they are included and involved.

Kairos delivers a variety of facilitated groups such as personal development programmes, training and development opportunities, a supported volunteer programme, peer support groups, project planning groups as well as social spaces. This is complimented by ‘Making Change’ opportunities including influencing the representation of women+ in history via Kairos Museum, campaigning for change with the Equalities Collective, planning and hosting equalities events and influencing Kairos’ development via the Development Team.
