It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Steve Ellis. Whilst Steve had been very unwell, his passing has come as a shock to us all.

Steve led St Petrocs for over 20 years in his role as Chief Executive and when he stepped down in April 2022, remained actively involved with the charity as Vice President.  

Steve was a recognisable figure and voice in Cornish society. Many of you will have met Steve over the years and seen the impact of his dedication to St Petrocs. His care for every individual, his ability to do the right thing and his vision for ending homelessness has brought St Petrocs to be the organisation it is today.  

We are proud to have worked alongside Steve and, as a team, are committed to bringing about his legacy of ending homelessness in Cornwall.

We remember Steve’s wife Mandy, their children and his wider family and friends at this time.

From all of us at St Petrocs (and in his own words), ‘go steady’ Steve.
