Council Grants and Funding

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 £500 but all requests for assistance are considered on their own merits by the full Council at their monthly meetings.

Applicants should contact the Penistone Town Council office for an application form by phone on 01226 370088 or email at (you can use the contact form here).

Grant applications must be submitted to the Penistone Town Council office at least 5 working days before the date of the next Council meeting (dates of upcoming meetings can be found here). Applications received later than this may be held over until the following meeting.
