Jennie Bates

Support Worker


I’m Jennie, a Support Worker at Kairos Women+. I previously studied Illustration and worked as an artist for a few years before realising I wanted to do more to promote social change, so I did an HNC in Community Development which opened my eyes to the amazing community-led work which is happening around me. I started incorporating the principles I’d learnt into my art practice, moving into workshop facilitation and teaching as well as making my own work. I realised I loved working with people and supporting them to learn new skills and explore their creativity and wanted to do more of that, and the job at Kairos came along at the perfect time! I’m currently working across the Mental Wellness Project with a focus on the Creative Cafe, and am enjoying settling into my role and seeing how it will develop over time as I get to know Kairos and develop relationships with the amazing women+ who attend.
