Frequently Asked Questions

What does the word 'Kairos' mean?

‘Kairos’ is an Ancient Greek word meaning: ‘the right, critical or opportune moment’. It’s that moment when conditions are just right for action or change – a Kairos moment! 

How do you pronounce 'kairos'?

‘Kairos’ is pronounced ‘kai – ross’. You can also find an audio recording of how it’s pronounced here! 

What does the '+' symbol mean in 'Kairos Women+'?

We wanted to create a name that is inclusive of non-binary people. After a period of consultation, our community decided a ‘+’ symbol would indicate our commitment to inclusion and acceptance. 

Who is included in a 'women's space'?

All of our spaces are inclusive of women and non-binary people. We are trans-inclusive and welcome all self-identifying women and non-binary people who feel most comfortable in women-only spaces. We are committed to keeping you safe at Kairos and if you have any questions about women-only spaces, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we will help you as best we can. 

Will there ever be men at Kairos?

We occasionally invite trusted men to deliver particular groups and workshops. All groups that may include any sessions delivered by men, will be clearly highlighted and participants will be told ahead of the sessions. As a women’s organisation, men aren’t participants of any of our groups or projects. 

Can I donate to support Kairos?

Of course! You can make a one off donation here. If you’d like to make a regular donation, please get in touch here or email katy@kairoswomen.org and we’d be delighted to help! 

Where are you based?

We are based in Renfrewshire and are currently running groups from The STAR Project, Paisley and 5 Houston Square, Johnstone. 

We are looking for our forever home so we can move our Kairos home out of storage and create a safe, welcoming space once again! 

Where do you get your funding?

Kairos Women+ is supported by grants from national and local organisations including The Robertson Trust, Renfrewshire Council and the Scottish Government via the Equality and Human Rights Fund. We raise funds via fundraising events, ticketed events and Chronicle donations. To support Kairos, click the donate button at the top of the page. 

Here they uplift you and, if you fall, they are here to catch you.
