Remember you are not alone - domestic abuse can happen to anyone no matter your age, race, class, culture, disability, gender, sexuality or lifestyle.

The Pankhurst Trust brings together Manchester Women’s Aid and the Pankhurst Centre. We work together to ensure the powerful story of the women who won the vote continues to inspire us all to challenge gender inequality, and to ensure that those suffering from domestic violence and abuse get the confidential help they need.


Manchester Women’s Aid are still operational and working together remotely to provide confidential advice, information and support for victims of domestic abuse. Isolation may increase your risk and we are here on our referral line 0161 660 7999 or email to provide support and help.

Week commencing 23rd August the Referral line will be staffed five nights per week from 9.30am to 8pm

Call our Helpline 0161 660 7999 Mon-Fri, 9.30am-8pm to talk to us if you feel you are suffering from domestic abuse. Talking to someone about how you feel can be the first step to getting the right support.

Our referral line staff are experts in the field of domestic abuse and are here to listen and advise.

All heritage operations at The Pankhurst Centre have been suspended until the worst of the crisis has passed. It is currently closed to visitors as is has become clear that we are not able to keep going without the income from our shop sales, room hires, donations from our generous museum visitors and funding for projects.
