Call: 01226 763 201
The East Peak Innovation Partnership was established in 2008 and links together areas covering Penistone and District, North Sheffield, South Kirklees and South West Wakefield. The Partnership was established to deliver a LEADER bottom up, community led approach to rural development.
“Liaison entre actions de dévelopement de l’économie rurale”
LEADER stands for “Links between Actions of Rural Development”.
The LEADER approach recognises that rural communities are themselves best placed to identify their needs and, by working together, they can find innovative solutions to local issues and can achieve real and lasting changes.
For further information about the LEADER approach please see our links page.
BREXIT and how it affects us
We have now had confirmation that any applications that are in contract (i.e. through the full application phase, appraisal and in receipt of a funding agreement from us) before we leave the EU will be honoured, even where activities take place after this. The future of the LEADER programme after this is uncertain but we will continue to provide updates as we receive further information.
