Office Management

Dean and Cauvin Trust Staff and Board Member



I have been the Chief Executive of Dean and Cauvin Trust since November 2014. Prior to this I was the Assistant Director. I love working with children and young people and am passionate about young people's rights and ensuring that they are given every opportunity to reach their full potential. I have also served as a Children's Panel member for a number of years and held the position of Treasurer on the Scottish Through-care and Aftercare Forum.

I have three grown up daughters and five grandchildren who give me much joy. I also enjoy the theatre, swimming and eating out.

Finance Manager

I joined Dean & Cauvin in 2017 as the Trust's first ever in-house Finance Manager. I currently manage our fantastic Administration team and together we support the amazing work the Trust does.

I have worked predominantly in the charity sector for the last 12 years nationally and internationally, at both management and Board level; and have qualified with ACCA.

When not at work, I am often found on a bicycle or running around Arthur's Seat.

I have been working as Administrator at Dean and Cauvin since July 2015.

I love being active (gym, swimming, body balance, riding on bike, cardio on trampolines) , which is great combination with spending time with my two lovely and very energetic children. In my free time I love to read books, a lot of books…

Fostering Administrator and Fundraising Officer

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 for 13 years 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.
