Veritas House is urgently looking for carers who are able to open their homes and hearts to assist children in need of a secure, safe and supportive home environment. Children in care sometimes have difficulties with behaviours and navigating their relationships and emotions, and need to have a sense of security. By providing a place to live with a nurturing environment, you can help these children and young people to feel comfortable and supported so they can grow and develop in a happy and healthy way.
Meet Miss Mila
Mila is a bright and bubbly 8-year-old who is looking for a warm and loving home. Mila thrives in one-on-one time. She enjoys craft, dolls and technology. She is active and likes to burn her energy outside on her bike or scooter, or even by doing some gardening. She loves animals and getting out into the community.
Mila needs a carer who can provide structure and routine, while offering patience and sound boundaries; a carer who understands trauma and the impact this can have on managing emotions. Mila’s needs a care who can support her with developing her cultural identity and family time with her birth family.
Get to Know Logan
At 8 years of age, Logan is an old soul who enjoys a good chat with anyone who will lend a patient ear. He has the most infectious and sweet smile, a unique sense of humour, and he enjoys making people smile and laugh. Logan is energetic and caring, and he adores spending time with his family. Logan loves being outside, riding his scooter and swimming at the pool. He appreciates a simple sausage sandwich and a big chocolate milkshake!
Logan is looking for a carer who will be able to nurture and support his emotional and behavioural needs, offering consistent routines and clear boundaries. He can become overwhelmed and anxious at times, so Logan’s carer will need to provide him with reassurance and guidance in a therapeutic way.
