Events in the area benefitting from council funding

How to Apply

Application Forms can be obtained by calling into the Council offices here at St John's Community Centre or by calling 370088.

We will ask you for details of the request, what the money is for, who will benefit and will require some financial information in support of that application and to help us make a decision.

Community Support Grants

Penistone Town Council actively supports & encourages local community groups or organisations working in our area and, where possible, will try to respond positively to all reasonable requests for funding. Individual grants are normally capped at £250 but all requests for assistance are considered on their own merits by full Council at their monthly meetings.

Mayors' Charities

Each Mayor raises funds separately to the above grants according to their chosen charities. There is no application needed, each Mayor will make their own decision as to which charities are supported in their particular year. Please see below for records of such fund raising.
