This thematic summary presents findings from an exploration of the development of women’s spaces, to understand how they have progressed and the critical factors required to support such an approach. The findings draw predominantly on the first year of the development of Kairos, a developing women’s space in Johnstone, and build on earlier findings from the development of Heart and Soul, Cumnock (Issue 1). The Robertson Trust commissioned the University of Strathclyde to carry out this research. The aim of this thematic summary is to share findings with others interested in similar approaches.
