  • Heritage Volunteers

    Our Heritage Volunteers help to provide visitors to the Pankhurst Centre with an inspiring and informative insight to our building - the birthplace of the Suffragette Movement. You don't need to have any previous knowledge, but if you have an interest or passion for the history of the Suffragettes, you may love volunteering with our Heritage team. 

    Drop in Volunteer

    Help to build the Pankhurst Museum's reputation as a Drop in Volunteer. Acting as the public face of the museum, you will play a vital role as the first point of contact, educator on exhibit pieces and guide. If you've got excellent people skills and a warm and friendly approach, we'd love to hear from you! 

  • Gardening Volunteer

    The Pankhurst Centre provides a therapeutic space for service users in its private gardens. We welcome volunteers to help maintain the garden and help its general upkeep. If you're green fingered with time to spare, we'd love to have you in our gardening team. 

    Want to volunteer your time another way?

    If these roles don’t fit within your skillset, we always welcome volunteers in other areas. Speak to our Volunteer Coordinator, Clare Blomley. Download our Volunteer form and email it to
