Looking to show your #SupportForSuffrage this year? There are loads of ways that you can join the celebration – why not check out some options below?
Register To Vote
If you haven’t already done so, registering to vote is probably the simplest way to pay tribute to the brave suffrage campaigners of centuries past. Registering takes five minutes and you will need your National Insurance number to complete your application. Simply visit www.gov.uk/registertovote – easy!
The fight for women’s suffrage only succeeded because women came together for a common cause. In this way, Centenary Cities Nottingham has a lot in common with the suffrage campaign – we need volunteers to join our team so that we can successfully deliver our programme of activities and celebrate the centenary in style!
If you’re interested in volunteering with Centenary Cities – either for one-off events or as a more permanent fixture – just send an email expressing your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll then notify you whenever appropriate volunteering opportunities arise throughout the year.
At the moment, we’re looking for volunteers to assist us at our…
- Banner making workshop at Nottingham Women’s Centre on 14th February
- Voter registration drive in Nottingham city on 20th February
- ‘100 Years On… Women’s Equality Discussion’ at the Nottingham Council House on 7th March
We’re also always looking for guest bloggers and vloggers – if you’ve got something to say about the centenary, or about women’s rights/equality in general, we’d love to hear from you! Equally, if research is your strong suit and you’d like to delve further into Nottingham’s history of suffrage, you could be perfect for a volunteering role as a social media researcher/content creator.
Whatever your talents or interests, we could use your support to help make Centenary Cities a success.
Run your own project/event
Want to get more stuck in with the centenary celebrations? Have you thought about arranging your own project or event?
The government has recently made a pot of funding available to local and community groups that need financial support for activities celebrating 100 years of votes for women. There will be multiple bidding rounds throughout the year for grants ranging from £300 to £125,000.
So, if you have an idea for an event that celebrates or raises awareness of women’s suffrage, why not visit the Women’s Vote Centenary Fund website for more information to find out how to apply?
Looking to celebrate the centenary in school?
We’ve put together an offer to schools to help you mark 100 years of votes for women! You can download the schools package here – just get in touch if you have questions, queries or if you’d like to find out more.
