Turning Lives Around (TLA)

Country or State

United Kingdom


I am the CEO at Turning Lives Around (TLA). We have over 150 staff working at a number of schemes in Leeds and Wakefield, housing and supporting homeless people in a range of settings, as well as working to prevent homelessness. We work in partnership with Leeds City Council and key partners including GIPSIL, Foundation and Touchstone. I am also Chair of the Community Land Trust Network. I was the Director at the United Nations World Habitat Award winning Canopy Housing (2008 - 2017), where I led an innovative, sustainable and replicable organisation with a strong global reputation in community-led housing, partnership work, support, training, and job creation. I am a resilient and effective professional, with active interests in homelessness, community-led housing, leadership and management. I graduated with a BA degree from Leeds University and have since gained an MBA. My career since 1993 has been in housing and leadership, in positions ranging from volunteer to Founder, from Resettlement Worker to CEO. Outside of work I enjoy family time, climbing, running, learning, cycling and chess. I'm on twitter: @steve_hoey
