Lilly Pilly facilitates changeovers to enable the child to be transferred from one parent to the other at contact times without the parents meeting. Lilly Pilly aims to avoid unnecessary conflict and stress for children and their parents. Parents are not required to come into physical contact with each other, and the children are protected from witnessing arguments between their parents or loved ones.
Please be aware that while Lilly Pilly seeks to assist, it is not our role to negotiate between the parties and we ask that the initial arrangements regarding the visitation/transportation be developed and agreed upon and then provided to Lilly Pilly. Any ongoing changes to those arrangements should be managed in the same way.
