The Pankhurst Trust (incorporating Manchester Women's Aid)

In 2014 The Pankhurst Centre and Manchester Women’s Aid merged to form The Pankhurst – a heritage site and women’s resource centre housed at 60/62 Nelson Street, Manchester, the original birthplace of the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) and home of the Pankhurst women. Our services include a museum and archive, heritage activities, volunteering programme, food bank, vulnerable women’s drop-in centre and DVA (domestic violence and abuse) support services.

  • Mission statement

    Our mission is to provide an accessible, empowering and safe space for the women and girls of Manchester, and the rest of the world, by restoring, protecting and promoting The Pankhurst’s unique place in the struggle for women’s equality. We work to ensure that the powerful story of the women who won the vote continues to inspire those who dare to challenge gender inequality and the violence and social injustice this fosters; and that people suffering or at risk of, domestic violence and abuse (DVA) receive appropriate support by providing safe accommodation and other services and by working in partnership with other agencies.
