Steve joined the Tyne team in early 2019 with over 20 years experience working with people experiencing homelessness and 13 years’ experience in management and leadership along with a Postgraduate Certificate in Leadership and Management in Housing and Homelessness. Prior to joining Tyne he held the position of Area Director (North) with Depaul UK, overseeing services such as supported and dispersed accommodation and prevention services.
Along with this experience Steve had also worked on secondment as a Specialist Adviser at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, acting as a local voice in national policy. Within this role he was able to help local authorities implement the Homelessness Reduction Act and the Rough Sleeping Initiative, which reversed the rising trend of people sleeping rough in England for the first time in a decade.
As Tyne Housing Group’s CEO, he is responsible for implementing our strategic plan and ensuring the continued development of our organisation.
