Description

Dean and Cauvin Young People’s Trust is one of Edinburgh’s oldest charities, established in 1733 by merchants in the city to rescue children and young people from the streets.

We continue to work to keep young people from living on the streets and focus on working with young people aged 15 – 26 as they make the transition from being looked after and accommodated to living independently in the community.

About Us

Dean and Cauvin Trust is one of Edinburgh’s oldest charities, established in 1733 by merchants in the city to rescue children and young people from the streets who were begging and prostituting themselves to survive.

They established residential accommodation which would appear austere by today’s standards but was groundbreaking at the time and gave children opportunities that would have otherwise been denied them. The Trust’s board have managed to provide a continuing service to the children of Edinburgh since the Trust’s inception and to this day work to support young people to fulfil their potential regardless of their life experiences.

Dean and Cauvin Trust provide a range of supports to young people making the transition from being looked after and accommodated to living independently in the community. We provide a range of supported residential placements and single supported tenancies to young people between the ages of 15 and 21 years and offer a ‘Continuum of care’ based on early intervention and relationship building to young people through our dedicated Throughcare and Aftercare Service.

Our residential service at Cauvin House provides accommodation to young parents and their children offering parenting support and assessment, in order to keep families together. With a Community based care and support package provided from the Through-care and Aftercare Service at the end of the residential placement.
