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

Welcome to The Pankhurst Centre


The Pankhurst Centre is an iconic part of Suffragette and women's history. Emmeline Pankhurst and her family lived at number 62 Nelson Street from 1898 until 1907. The first meeting of the Women's Social and Political Union - the movement that became known as the Suffragettes - took place in the parlour of this house! Visit us to experience the drama of this place, and learn about the history of the fight for women's right to vote. The Centre is also a women's service, which helps to support the local community in Manchester. 

Inspired? You can also volunteer, donate and fundraise for the centre.
