Our Journey So Far

Kairos Women+ started life in 2017 as a project within a larger charity. The Robertson Trust approached Active Communities with the idea of developing a gender-specific and community-led Women’s Space in Johnstone to achieve positive outcomes for women. Strathclyde University conducted research on the project in the initial stages, which you can read here.

Kairos Women+ has blossomed since then, developing new projects and reaching more and more new women and non-binary people. We pride ourselves on our community-led approach and are continuously searching for new ways to hand the power over to our communities to make change, learn and become active and engaged citizens.

In April 2021, Kairos Women+ became a registered Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO).
