Dean and Cauvin is excited to announce the development of a new fostering service specifically for teenagers.

Our new service is now registered with the Care Inspectorate and is called ROOM4U.

We believe that as an organisation we have a lot to offer both young people and those who will foster with us.

Room4U fostering service provides high quality full time and short break foster placements for teenagers and young parents and babies accommodated by local authorities in Scotland.

Our foster carers provide skilled care and support to the young people in placement so that placements last as long as needed and benefit the young people and babies concerned.

We offer services that are equally available to all young people and are sensitive to their needs combined with intensive through care and after care services, supporting young people to achieve positive destinations once they leave care.

Our carers also provide specialist parent and child placements offering nurturing care and support with our aim being to maximise the chances of babies being cared for successfully by their parents.

Although Room4U is new fostering service, we are part of probably the oldest child care organisation in Scotland, the Dean and Cauvin Young People’s Trust. We have been in existence since 1733, so we bring a wealth of knowledge and experience of adolescents and young parents and babies to the fostering service.

If you are interested in becoming a foster carer please us keep an eye on our website ROOM4U website, which will provide information on all aspects of the service.
