Meet The Staff

Supervising Social Worker

Iain Cross

My name is Iain and I am the supervising social worker for Room4U Teenage Fostering.

I began my journey with Dean & Cauvin in 2018 as a student social worker. I graduated with a first class honours degree after my placement. I joined the Aftercare team and then moved to Portland Street as a residential worker. I am privileged to work for such an esteemed charity and enjoy offering support to foster families, looked after young people and developing the service.

I currently live in Edinburgh with my partner, Rona. I enjoy hiking around Scotland and wild swimming. I love visiting new countries as often as possible to experience new food and culture. My favourite destination is Italy (after Scotland of course!).

Fostering Administrator

Hi. My name is Debra. I have been working as Fostering Administrator at Dean and Cauvin since March 2017. I have enjoyed the challenge of helping set up ROOM4U Fostering and it was a proud moment when we approved our first foster carers. I have worked in fostering and adoption since 2006 and relish the challenges.

I am from Musselburgh in East Lothian but now live in Bonnyrigg with my husband, David, and English Bulldog, Snorri. Snorri keeps me busy and amused with his daily antics. I enjoy arts and crafts, reading, baking, travelling and spending time with my husband and dog.

Service Manager

Carolyn Thomson

Hi all, my name is Carolyn and I am currently the Fostering and Transition Team Service Manager.

I have worked for the Trust for 25 years and have worked in most capacities across the Trust during my time in service. I enjoy my work very much and particularly enjoy building trusting working relationships with young people and their families. I get excited about new developments which have been developed in response to young peoples feedback. I believe we can learn so much from working with young people/parents and this enables me to shape my practice while working with young people/parents.

I enjoy spending time with my family, and my hobbies are cooking, reading and watching movies. Looking forward to working with you.
