About us:

The Pankhurst Trust brings together Manchester Women’s Aid and the Pankhurst Centre. We work together to ensure the 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.

62 Nelson Street was the home of the Emmeline Pankhurst and her family and was the place where the first meeting of the Women’s Social and Political Union – the movement which became known as the Suffragettes – took place. Saved from demolition by a grass roots campaign in the 1970s and 1980s, the Pankhurst Centre is now the only heritage site in the U.K. dedicated to telling the story of the Pankhurst family and the story of women’s fight for the right to vote.

Manchester Women’s Aid has over 40 years’ experience in providing vital services to survivors of domestic violence and abuse in Manchester, including refuge accommodation, outreach and education services, and specialist services for marginalised groups.

The Pankhurst Trust (Incorporating Manchester Women’s Aid is a diverse organisation with 27% of our staff coming from BAME and 23% from LGBT communities. We span the generations with 29% of staff being aged 18-24 and 10% aged 55-64. 11% of staff identify as having a disability.

Our staff, volunteers and service users have taken time to reflect on who we are and what we do when we are at our best. This reflection showed that we can proudly claim to be:

Courageous by challenging inequality, stepping forward and making change

Affirming by supporting and inspiring, paying attention to discover what matters

Generous by sharing our skills, creating energetic positive links, and thriving together

Rooted by being secure in our communities, participating and nurturing a sense of belonging
