KAIROS WOMEN WORKING TOGETHER 

Kairos Women Working Together (Kairos WWT) is a specialist women's organisation in Coventry. We support and advocate for women facing multiple disadvantge; those with complex unmet needs, including women at risk of and subject to sexual exploitation. We empower women to increase their safety, stability, self-belief, and self- reliance to build lives free from abuse and exploitation.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government and there are significant future grants due to be received
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and dynamic in terms of composition

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • There has been a change of accounting period recently, so trends may be hard to determine
