Steve Ellis was educated at Liverpool University and has more than 30 years’ experience of local government housing and homelessness. He was a key part of his home city’s urban regeneration programme in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. After a spell in the private sector, Steve joined St Petrocs in 1999, overseeing the continued development of its service provision.

Steve is proud of St Petrocs’ continued links within the Cornish community, particularly the schools and churches, which he believes are the bedrock of St Petrocs work.

Steve is married with four children and two dogs. He is a qualified football coach and has for many years supported youth football in Cornwall.
