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

Help us transform the Pankhurst Centre

The Pankhurst Centre is a building of immense historical significance, and the museum pays tribute to one of the most momentous and pivotal developments in our country's political and democratic history. Emmeline was a single parent at the time, she had a part-time job, and she started a revolutionary movement. It is a powerful and inspirational story, yet the Museum is currently staffed by volunteers and receives no public funding for its upkeep and maintenance, instead relying on donations. 

Despite all of the amazing efforts of our volunteers and supporters, our funding situation is precarious. It is crucial that we secure funding this year, the centenary of the first women achieving the right to vote in the UK, to protect and restore the building to ensure a permanent home for the Suffragette legacy beyond 2018. It will take up to £5m to transform the Centre into an enhanced museum attraction that will empower and inspire generations to come, and is befitting of the Pankhurst legacy and the quest for female equality.

We are making an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund this year, but to secure the funding we need to demonstrate we have the support of people who believe that the story of women’s suffrage needs to be told and remembered. Together, in 2018, we can bring about the change in fortunes that the Centre needs. By supporting us during the centenary year, you will help to secure the future of 60-62 Nelson Street, to ensure that we can continue to tackle gender equality, and that the powerful story of the women who won the vote continues to inspire and empower generations to come.
