Dean and Cauvin Young People’s Trust (Scotland’s oldest charity) hosted a fabulous red carpet event last night (Thursday 5th April) at White Stuff on George Street. The night included a showcase of three short films made by the charity to promote their new fostering service. Young people supported by the charity worked with film makers from daysix creative agency to create an advert to recruit foster carers which will be shown on STV next week; as well as two more films highlighting the need for foster carers and the difference the Trust makes in the lives of young people.
Over 70 people attended the evening, which included an Oscar style awards ceremony for those who took part in the filming, with Oscars for Best Actress/Actor amongst others as well as music from The Rock Trust. Craig, who took part in the project, said “it was great to get an Oscar and to see how many people came on the night to support us. Dean and Cauvin is like a family and it was a great party”.
Guests ranged from foster carers, care experienced young people, board members and members of the public. Feedback on the event has been really positive, one attendee, Barbara said “It was a fantastic event. We were totally blown away by it”.

Dean and Cauvin Young People’s Trust Host Short Film Premiere
Dean and Cauvin Young People’s Trust (Scotland’s oldest charity) is hosting a red carpet film premiere, this Thursday 5th April 2018 at White Stuff on George Street, showcasing a series of short films created by young people to promote their new Room4U Fostering Service.
The three films highlight the need for more foster carers in Scotland as well as the difference being a foster carer can make to the lives of young people. The premiere comes the week before one of the films will be used as an advertisement on STV; asking people to come forward and apply to be carers.
The premiere has been organised by young people involved in the project, Matt (23) said “I loved making the films, it was great fun and the premiere is going to be amazing”. The glitzy premiere will see entertainment for the guests, including dancing and music, as well as a prestigious award ceremony celebrating the young people involved and the new Room4U fostering service.
