Supervised Children’s Contact for Parents and Families

Free Print

At Lilly Pilly, we work with families to encourage positive interaction between children and their parents and to support the strengthening of these relationships. We believe every child has a right to spend time with their parents or significant other people as long as it does not affect their best interests. We understand every situation is very different and there is no perfect solution to the time children spend with their parents.

All Lilly Pilly, staff put children’s needs first and not take sides with either parent or any other adult involved in the visits. Lilly Pilly’s aim is to always to minimise a child’s exposure to conflict or unsafe situations when parents are separating or have separated.

Lilly Pilly can be available 7 days a week, including Public Holidays.
