The Pankhurst Trust runs the Pankhurst Centre – the former home of Emmeline – and Manchester Women’s Aid which provides vital support services in refuges across Greater Manchester to those suffering from domestic violence and abuse.
Members volunteer at the Centre and help with events.

Last year we helped to provide a sewing machine for each of the five refuges and members attend regularly to demonstrate sewing skills.
