EVA Charities

Each year, we choose a different charity to raise awareness at the Enterprise Vision Awards ceremony. We are proud to work with these charities and although we can only choose one per year we hope that our awards platform is able to make a difference.

We are inspired and want to help champion these amazing charities. Please take a moment to read their information or visit their websites.

The Pankhurst Trust

The Suffragettes were dedicated to fighting for the rights of women and it was due to their commitment that women won the right to vote in 1918. The Pankhurst Museum houses artifacts honouring the Pankhurst family as well as providing a fascinating insight into the Suffragette movement. Visitors can discover the Suffragette's story and explore the impact that it has had on the rights of women on a local and global scale, in the building that started it all. The charity continues to inspire and challenge gender inequality and ensures that those suffering from domestic violence and abuse get the confidential help they need.
